Kelly Hanson


Disability Specialist in Academic Support Center

I feel honored to partner with the students and staff here at Gustavus.  As the Disability Specialist, I help students to gain equal access to the academic curriculum, teach skills for academic success, and empower students to advocate for themselves.  I assist students in understanding their strengths and challenges to build on their unique potential.

I have a Masters in Counseling and Student Personnel with an emphasis on College Student Affairs.  I have worked in Higher Education and the Mental Health field in various capacities. I am delighted that my journey has brought me here, to be engaging with students during their time at Gustavus.

I am on campus:                                                                                                                      Mondays: 5pm to 7pm                                                                                                Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays: 8am to 4pm

If you are a student with a disability or suspect you may have a disability and need assistance, please call the Academic Support Center at 507-933-7027 to set up an appointment with me.
