Katherine Valde, President Mason,







Before she was elected president of the undergraduate student body, UI senior Katherine Valde (center) learned valuable leadership skills through the Iowa N.E.W. Leadership program, offered through the UI Women’s Action and Resource Center. Now Valde regularly meets with UI President Sally Mason (left) and other community leaders.

When Katherine Valde was elected president of the University of Iowa’s undergraduate student government in 2013, she became only the fourth woman to serve in the role since 1990.
