Manager of Scheduling and Systems, Purdue Memorial Union
Purdue University


Kathy Walters is currently the Manager of Scheduling and Systems in the Purdue Memorial Union at Purdue University. She has been at Purdue for 27 years. As a staff member at Purdue University, she has been an active member of a university-wide ADA committee for over 10 years. She has had a strong interest in ADA issues ever since a colleague, who was also an Event Planner, was disabled as result of a horrific car accident. Through her colleague’s eyes, Kathy became well aware of the challenges of a disabled person on a college campus and strove to learn more about it and educate her colleagues and other areas on campus. She has presented on ADA and Hospitality issues numerous times on campus and at national conferences.
