Grantwriting & Development

I have a proven track record with fundraising, and have co-written and co-directed successful grants up to $3 million. Let me help your next project get off the ground.

Strategic Planning

Whether building a new project or refining a longstanding program, you want your work to have an impact. From the big picture to the smallest details, I can make it happen.

Program Evaluation

What’s working, what’s not? How can your program grow and thrive? An outside eye can uncover patterns, unseen strengths, and opportunities. I know what to look for and can advise on next steps.

I am also available for select talks and workshops. In recent years I have given over 80 talks on topics such as:

  • Graduate education reform
  • Career pathways for humanities graduate students
  • Labor practices in higher education
  • Equity in the academy
  • Public scholarship
  • Scholarly communication
  • The importance of humanities scholarship

Why Hire Me?

As a humanities PhD and a higher education expert with over a decade of experience, I have a deep understanding of the importance of continually working to improve and update program structures—as well as the challenges and political sensitivities inherent in the task. My roles have included administration, research, and teaching at institutions including the Futures Initiative at the City University of New York, the Modern Language Association, the Scholarly Communication Institute, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Within each of those programs, I have created frameworks that are supportive, sustainable, research-driven, and community-oriented

My work is grounded in research as well as experience. I am the author of Putting the Humanities PhD to Work: Thriving in and beyond the Classroom (Duke University Press, 2020), a highly regarded book that examines the value and possibility of humanities graduate education both within and beyond the academy. 

Equity, sustainability, engagement, and community are my focal points in all aspects of my work. I help institutions to develop policies and practices that support retention and wellbeing of faculty, students, and staff, while also fostering creative and high-impact scholarship that goes beyond the walls of the university.

What People are Saying

For colleagues in higher ed: bringing in @katinalynn to help you think critically and productively about your programs would be a very wise investment.

Working with @katinalynn at @FuturesED was a life-changing experience.

Katina added a lot of value to the project, researching useful materials, bringing in external collaborators, and improving the quality of the website at the heart of the project. Her research and networking brought a number of new external collaborators, increasing and improving the scope of the project. She worked with minimal oversight, and all our communication was productive in advancing the project.

Been encouraging students to read @katinalynn‘s Putting the Humanities PhD to Work as it’s a great text for highlighting the politics of grad ed early on (and what folks can do abt it). And now I’m encouraging ppl to hire her as she’s great at reimagining a more equitable doc ed.

Katina Rogers is the real deal. The author of “Putting the Humanities PhD to Work” (& my brilliant, former @MellonFdn Scholarly Communication Institute colleague!) is now consulting on programs and projects in higher ed.
