Catherine Shapiro

Dean Shapiro works with students in GreenoughHurlbut, Pennypacker, and Wigglesworth dorms.


She was born in Pittsburgh and raised in Texas, and while happily transplanted to the East Coast, remains both a Steelers fan and a Texas partisan. She was a political science and economics double major at Rice, and got her PhD in political science at Stanford. Along the way, she interned for two members of Congress, worked at OEF International, and consulted for Emily's List. For almost ten years she was in the Government Department at Dartmouth College, teaching courses including Congress and Leadership in Politics. She was Allston Burr Resident Dean at Leverett House for seven years and Assistant Dean for Residential Life. Most recently, she served as Chief of Staff for the President McAuliffe at Bryn Mawr College.
