Catherine Roussel

Director of Outreach

As the Woodbury University Architect Licensing Adviser and Director of Outreach, Catherine is an architect involved in both architectural education and practice. In her role, she engages and enhances institutional, student and alumni connections as the primary liaison between the university and local and regional design firms and related industries. She advises students on how to start their careers strategically, beginning with work experience while in school. Leading Woodbury School of Architecture’s pilot Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL) program, she is working to rethink how students can challenge current linear education paths by integrating experience and examination. Through her teaching, she addresses policy and regulatory issues to support the successful practice of architecture.
