Dr. Jaqueline McLeod Rogers, Chair of Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications, shares that view. “When I speak of Catherine, I am speaking of an esteemed colleague and long-time friend. She is judicious and insightful and will bring these strengths to her work as an administrator, much as she has brought them to teaching and researching”. Dr. McLeod Rogers goes on to say that “In addition to overseeing bold and ambitious LGBTQ research that has and will truly change lives for the better, she has a gift for listening carefully to others and for talking with sense and humour—how many can quote Wallace Stevens and Tennyson without pause, with equal ease?”
