Dr. Cathy S. Dove is the 10th President of Paul Smith’s College. Since joining the college in 2014 she has developed a passion for the Adirondack region and spends as much time as possible exploring the mountains and lakes. Cathy is a long-standing advocate for environmental and wildlife issues, and with thanks to the faculty at Paul Smith’s College has become much more educated about critical issues such as climate change. She decided to tackle Kilimanjaro as a way of raising awareness for these global challenges, as Kili’s shrinking glaciers are a clear indicator of environmental global change. At the same time, she is using the trip to raise scholarship support for PSC students — our next generation of environmental leaders.
