Prior to joining BUILD, Kate Slater, Ph.D. was the Assistant Dean of Graduate Student Affairs at Brandeis University and the Associate Director and Manager of Programs at the Institute for Recruitment of Teachers, a nonprofit that addresses the lack of educators of color in the American educational system. Kate is also a professor and teaches courses in the Department of Education at the University of New Hampshire, including “Issues in Education” and “Teaching Race”. Kate also facilitates trainings and conversations around social justice and anti-racism with K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and private organizations.
Kate Slater, Ph.D. received her doctorate in Educational Policy and Leadership from the University of New Hampshire, where her dissertation research focused on the experiences of underrepresented students who participate in bridge / access programs as an entry point into predominantly white institutions (PWIs). She is thrilled to bring this expertise to her role as the National Director of College Success at BUILD. Kate lives in Massachusetts with her partner, her two daughters, and her absurd dog Carrot Cake. In her spare time, she’s an obsessive reader and a very slow runner.
