Kate Slider graduated from Juniata College with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary explorations of gender. Her individualized plan of study has allowed her to explore a range of perspectives on gender from fields such as sociology, peace and conflict studies, and psychology. While at Juniata, Kate became an active member of the college community through various leadership positions and by advocating for social justice on campus.
