Alfred University Creates Judson Center for Leadership

Alfred University is creating the Beth Robinson Judson Center for Leadership to honor an alumna, trustee and founding member of the Women’s Leadership Center (WLC). Elizabeth (Beth) Robinson Judson, a 1982 graduate of Alfred University with a degree in ceramic engineering, died October 26, 2010, when the small plane in which she and her husband were flying crashed shortly after takeoff. Judson had been a member of the Alfred University Board of Trustees for 10 years prior to her death.

Creating the Judson Leadership Center “is a fitting tribute to a person who provided so much leadership to Alfred University,” said Kathy Woughter, vice president of Student Affairs, who worked closely with Judson and the other members of the Women’s Leadership Center Advisory Board to launch the WLC, which was dedicated in June 2006.

Creating the Judson Leadership Center at Alfred University “fulfills Beth’s vision,” said Alfred Charles M. Edmondson, president of Alfred Univsersity. She wanted to develop leadership programs that were “intentional, strategic and systematic” to “help a large number of students.”

The components of the Judson Leadership Center will be the Women’s Leadership Center; the Gary Horowitz Leadership Development Program, which is an offshoot of the Gary Horowitz Service Learning program administered by the Career Development Center; and the Saxon Sidekicks, a mentoring program developed this year by Hannah Certis, a senior who completed an internship in Woughter’s office.
