Kate Carter-Cram came to Boise State from a close-knit high school, and fought to find her place on campus. She now sees her time at the university as having changed her life, giving her new opportunities, helping her build new relationships and letting her see the world.
Carter-Cram fulfills the promise of an interdisciplinary education. She earned a B.A. in Global Studies with minors in Economics and French, as well as a certificate in User Research; and the skills and knowledge she got during her education will support her career goals. Her plan is to earn a Ph.D. and work with a supranational agency writing international development policy, focusing on gender inequality.
Both on- and off-campus, Carter-Cram has been the picture of the active student. She worked at the Boise State Writing Center, and has joined multiple research projects, including conducting independent behavior economics research on student behavior during the pandemic; studying diversity practices at the Writing Center; and working on a paper for publication on how climate change will affect agricultural policies and water scarcity in Yemen.
For the last three years, she has participated in the College of Innovation and Design innovation challenges, studied abroad in Lyon, France, and has been inducted into the Sigma Iota Rho and Alpha Mu Gamma honor societies.
