Kat Collins, M.A.
Associate Director for Leadership & Life Skills
Kat graduated from Norwich University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and minor in sociology. At the start of her career, Kat worked in special education for a school district in Vermont where she gained experience developing individual curricula for students who required alternative approaches to learning. She also briefly spent time with the Vermont Department of Children and Families-St. Albans Unit, providing support to social workers and families working toward reunification. Kat returned to Norwich in 2013 as an assistant director of admissions. She completed a master’s degree in school counseling from Johnson State College in 2016, followed by an internship at Spaulding High School.
Kat oversees the Leadership Development Program and Class2Class Program, and is developing a Life Skills Program for undergraduates. As the world of “work” is changing, she feels it is important that Norwich students are prepared to face those challenges, not just professionally but also personally. Through collaborations with other key offices and alumni, Kat hopes to give students opportunities for meaningful engagement so that they are prepared for and able to have fulfilling careers. In her free time, Kat enjoys knitting, exercising, and spending time with her husband and dog, IO (eye-oh).
