rha advisor

Catherine LaRoche is the RHA Advisor and Barrett, the Honors College Complex Assistant Director. She has gone above and beyond her advisor role by facilitating meetings and setting the tone and direction of the organization. She advises the seven residential council advisors on campus, ensuring mentorship and success in each community. 


Catherine inspires student leaders to navigate their way through trials and tribulations with her thoughtful guidance, which leads to creative solutions and continual leadership development. She maintains a presence at programs and advocacy initiatives while balancing her advising role, pursuing a doctorate, and being actively involved within other organizations.

Catherine is a phenomenal advisor who has helped us reshape RHA-Tempe into the powerful organization it currently is; unified, inclusive, professional and welcoming.
