The following is an excerpt from the Pittsburgh Business Times.
“New Carlow University President Kathy W. Humphrey brims with enthusiasm in seeking to spread the word about all that is good about Carlow while also offering a shrewd observation on the nature of leadership.
‘It’s an interesting feeling actually because you understand that you are taking on the mantle and that if the institution thrives, it’s because of the team,’ she said. ‘But if it fails, it’s you.’
In March, Humphrey was inaugurated as Carlow’s 11th president. An Oakland resident who previously worked at the University of Pittsburgh as senior vice chancellor for student engagement and secretary to the University of Pittsburgh Board of Trustees, she starts in her new role keenly aware of her responsibility to Carlow’s student base, of which 44% are first-generation college students for whom an educational trajectory into well-paying careers can be vitally important.”
