Katharine Johnson

Katharine received both a Masters of Education in Counseling and Guidance Services (1998) and a Bachelor of Arts in History (1994) from Clemson University. She has more than 16 years of experience in higher education in both academic and student affairs and her academic career has spanned the country from the University of Washington to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and most recently the University of North Carolina Asheville. However, Katharine found her home at Appalachian State University when she joined the Student Learning Center in 2017.

With a passion for encouraging students to achieve their academic and career aspirations, Katharine draws upon her extensive experience in career counseling and instructing academic success skills courses to provide students with the knowledge and tools to manage their own college success. You can find her in the classroom instructing courses on time management and academic success strategies, in her office providing individual student consultations and out and about representing the Student Learning Center at campus events.

On the weekend, you’ll most likely find Katharine browsing a book store, eating pizza, biking, or camping with her dog, Raleigh.
