Meet the President

Kathy Wilson Humphrey, PhD, is the 11th president of Carlow University. With more than 35 years in higher education, she is revered as an inspirational and visionary leader with a wealth of experience in planning and budgeting; community engagement; diversity, equity and inclusion; and board management. 

Dr. Humphrey embraces Carlow’s Mercy heritage and longstanding commitment to social justice as the key to positively impacting and transforming generations of lives. Passionate about helping more students gain access to and complete postsecondary education, she identifies with the 44 percent of PELL-eligible undergraduate students at Carlow, as she, too, was a PELL-eligible college student.
