CUA Appoints New Director for Housing and Residential Services
Katherine Davis Boone
Katherine Davis Boone has been appointed director for housing and residential services at The Catholic University of America. She began her new position on October 2.
Mrs. Boone most recently served as the associate director of residence life and housing at Kean University in Union, N.J., where she oversaw all staffing and program responsibilities for a residence life operation housing 1,200 students.
Prior to that, she worked as director of residence life and conferences at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia (1994-1998) and at neighboring Trinity College (1992-1994), where she earned a master’s degree in education in 1994.
“Mrs. Boone will be a wonderful addition to our administrative staff. The area of Housing and Residential Services is so critical to the quality of student life on campus," said the Very Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M., President of Catholic University. “Although she has a great deal of work ahead of her, I am confident that she will make a positive contribution to improving our service to resident students and to strengthening a Catholic environment on campus.”
“We cast a net widely in our search for a new director for housing and residential services this summer and were richly rewarded in bringing Katie Boone aboard,” said the Rev. Robert Friday, vice president for student life. “She has the technical knowledge and the warm, open personality so essential for this key position on campus. Housing is every bit as much about ‘people’ as it is about ‘facilities.’ I am confident that students, staff and faculty will find in Katie a professional and a sensitive, caring human being.”
Mrs. Boone is the outgoing president of the Mid Atlantic Association of College and University Housing Officers. In 1999 she received the organization’s James Hurd Outstanding Service Award. She also has been active as a religious education instructor and as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.
