Kristin Rahn, Graduate Assistant
Kristin is a graduate student at GVSU in the Master of Public Administration program and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Architecture from Western Michigan University. She has three years experience with sustainable development and operations strategy for Habitat for Humanity of Matthews, North Carolina and served a year with AmeriCorps*VISTA developing a new green building initiative with Habitat.
Kristin believes that in a social landscape overpopulated with opinions and information, effective knowledge acquisition should combine art, science, and even altruism. Her undergraduate work as a design student underscored how much knowledge, dedication and a well-defined intention can broaden the impact of creativity. Kristin's passion lies in seeing innovative research methods give way to truly impactful policies and initiatives.
