university’s enrollment has grown in nearly every program, she launched the
university’s school of business — complete with an MBA program — and
restructured the school of education. And all that was only part of her
Hanson also led the university through
a comprehensive strategic plan, and at the same time, guided the opening of ‘Hamline
University Minneapolis,’ a thriving remote campus for business and education
students. The school also broke ground recently on a University Center at its Saint

ushered in new programs, such as a master of fine arts in writing for children
and young adults and launched a Health Law Institute, the first of its kind in
the Upper Midwest.”
