Wishing all 'Pards a happy and healthy summer!


Cathy Shankweiler

Database and Special Projects Coordinator

Cathy loves data period! It always tells a story.

At Lafayette since 2011, she manages the Gateway Career Center’s First Destinations, Summer Experiences, and other database projects. She also coordinates an on-campus student employment program, helping our Federal Work Study/Campus Job Eligible (FWS/CJE) students find on-campus jobs.

In addition to working with Lafayette’s Gateway Career Center, Cathy consults with private businesses and community organizations in designing and implementing database management systems. “A new database application (or data science course) always provides an opportunity to learn!”

She holds a BS degree (Law Enforcement and Corrections) from the Pennsylvania State University, and a M.Ed. degree (Social Restoration) from Lehigh University.

On a personal level, she has never met a competitive sport that she did not like. She especially enjoys Volleyball, Basketball, Football, and Golf.
