To Cathy Wolfe, “space” is more than just the room one has on a desk to place a daily calendar or store important files.

As George Mason’s new director of space management, Wolfe views space in broader terms—”a dynamic challenge involving a great deal of collaboration and negotiation.”

She notes, “Everyone at the university needs space and, in many cases, needs more of it. A key to my job is to understand the needs of the offices and departments at Mason and make recommendations on how they can be met both in the present as well as for the future.”

Wolfe joined the staff at Mason last fall after working at Kling, an architectural/engineering/interior design firm headquartered in Philadelphia. From 2000 to 2004, she was its interiors studio director and senior project manager. She is an architect by training, with a graduate degree in architecture from the State University of New York at Buffalo. She also has a master’s degree in education from Drexel University.

Wolfe’s position is part of Mason’s facilities operation. She serves as the primary staff support for the university’s standing Space Administration Committee, which is jointly chaired by Provost Peter Stearns and Senior Vice President Maurice Scherrens.

Mason has more than four million square feet of developed space in more than 120 buildings on its three campuses.
