Kathlene “Kate” Rosier is returning as the executive director of the Indian Legal Program at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
Rosier, who left the College of Law in 2011 to become the assistant general counsel for the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, served as the Indian Legal Program’s director for 11 years.
“I feel like I’m being reunited with family,” Rosier said about her return. “I love and missed the daily interaction with students, so I was excited to have the opportunity to come back.”
Rosier replaces Ann Marie Downes, who recently was appointed by the White House to serve in the assistant secretary’s office of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Rosier will start on October 13.
