The capstone meeting of the CUE (Connecting the Undergraduate Experience) Steering Committee, led by Interim Vice Provost for Academic Programs Catherine Cardwell, was highlighted by an expression of her fellow committee members’ appreciation for her extraordinary leadership.

Committee member Dr. Neal Jesse cited Cardwell’s “unselfish leadership efforts  . . . toward achieving Charting Our Future’s Strategy 1. Without her prodigious work ethic, paired with strong organizational skills, thoroughness and attention to detail over the past 19 months, we doubt our mutual efforts to create a workable plan for transforming Bowling Green State University’s undergraduate curriculum and general education program into the Bowling Green Experience could have succeeded nearly so well.”

In addition to her regular administrative responsibilities, the Faculty Senate committee pointed out, Cardwell presided over weekly communication and organizational meetings while facilitating bi-monthly steering committee meetings; organized several Steering Committee retreats plus multiple community-wide town hall forums; skillfully navigated the process through BGSU as well as at the state level with the Ohio Board of Regents and the Transfer and Articulation Council, and worked collaboratively within the BGSU governance structure to keep everyone informed of the committee’s progress and to ensure the committee was following the Academic Charter guidelines.

“While Cathi’s tremendous understanding of general education requirements locally and at the state level was crucial to this committee’s work, her leadership abilities were equally important,” the commendation stated. “Cathi has excellent communication skills and proceeds with a quiet demeanor as she gets the job done. She offers clear answers by providing information and guidance rather than authoritative direction. Cathi’s cooperative spirit has been a driving force behind this committee’s success.”
