Kate Law is Boise State’s new assistant dean of students.
Law is a proud alumna of Michigan State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Economics and Policy, and of Grand Valley State University, where she earned a Master of Education with an emphasis in College Student Affairs Leadership.
Prior to enrolling in her graduate program, Law was in the field of social work for more than eight years in Michigan. After working in adult literacy, she realized her passion for adult learners and sought to establish a career within student affairs.
Law began working at Boise State in 2019 as the student conduct process coordinator in the Office of the Dean of Students. Since joining Boise State, she has worked with the Professional Development Committee to create a mentoring program for employees in the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. Most recently, she has joined the Coordinated Community Response team, whose aim is to identify campus needs related to gender-based violence, and to implement preventive measures and responsive interventions that are collaborative, informed, holistic and inclusive.
Law considers herself a life-long learner, and as such is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction. Law is excited for her new role, and the opportunity to continue impacting the student experience and upholding the mission and values of the institution. In her free time, she enjoys hiking the foothills, reading and continuing to explore all that Boise, and the state of Idaho, has to offer.
