Katherine (Kate) Cudé, Residence Director of South Hall, was born in Porland, Oregon, but has also lived in Washington state, Vermont and Virginia! She began her college career at Piedmont Virginia Community College, and then transferred to the University of Vermont (UVM) at Burlington for a B.A. in Political Science. She worked as a Resident Advisor and Lead Resident Advisor (similar to our RAs) while at UVM. Kate is a perennial political activist, having worked with the American Association of University Women's ElectHer Program (which supports women seeking public office), and on both the lieutenant governor's and governor's campaigns in Vermont. She is also keenly interested in conflict resolution and proactive conflict prevention within communities -- including college communities.
