Launching the Fitzsimmons Scholarship for Women in Leadership


After 24 years of inspirational and dedicated service, Professor Kathleen stepped back from classroom teaching in May, 2022. One of AUR’s best loved and most active professors, Professor Fitsimmons positively impacted hundreds of young lives over the course of her time with AUR – many of those students continue to hold her as a friend and mentor long after their graduation.

Professor Fitzsimmons epitomizes AUR’s core values of teamwork & leadership, she has been a role model and inspiration throughout her time in the classroom. To honor her enormous and enduring contribution to AUR, and to the impact she has had on the students she came into contact with, the university (with Professor Fitzsimmons' enthusiastic support) has launched a campaign to establish The Fitzsimmons Scholarship for Women in Leadership.
