Davis, Kathryn (Geography/ Global Studies) is Stepping Beyond


“Dr. Davis exceeds expectations in her role as an advisor, mentor, and friend. She truly cares about each of her students. Dr. Davis is the only reason I came to SJSU.┬áSince then, she has opened many possibilities for me to excel. As an advisor, she has gone above and beyond to help me graduate in a timely manner. As a mentor, her advice is straightforward, constructive, and honest. Recently, when my father began having serious health problems, Dr. Davis took the time to reach out and make sure I was okay. In the classroom, she is always accessible and focused on students’ needs. She is a thoughtful and diligent person, highly intelligent, and yet so down to earth. She may not know it, but she has inspired me in so many ways to improve myself academically. From Dr. Davis, I realized the importance and value of an education and she alone has inspired me to further my academic endeavors. Students don’t need a dozen role models; they need one just one. For me, that person is Dr. Kathryn Davis.” –Samina Patel
