Interim Director of Industry Relations and Entrepreneurial Minded Co-op Project Manager

Katherine leads efforts in the Opus College of Engineering for the incorporation of the Entrepreneurial Mindset in the co-op program to enhance students’ co-op experiences. Student development of the Entrepreneurial Mindset begins freshman year and continues through the sophomore curriculum before students begin their first co-op term. Employers continue to foster students’ Entrepreneurial Mindset during the co-op and/or through consultation with and coaching from Katherine, transforming students’ co-ops from a traditional experience to one that builds students’ curiosity, helps them build connections between classroom knowledge and industry context, creates value for students and employers, and considers consequences of ethical decision making.
