Associate Director of Academic Programs
Kristen Robinson serves as Associate Director of Academic Programs for the Global Human Development Program, and engages with students through their entire lifecycle, from when they apply to the program, to when they enroll as students, to when they continue to engage with the program as alumni. Kristen graduated from Georgetown’s College of Arts & Sciences in 2010 with a degree in French and a minor in Spanish, and is delighted to be back on the Hilltop again. In May 2020, she completed her M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where her coursework focused on student affairs interventions (particularly for first-generation college students), student success and completion strategies, and challenges facing the American higher education system. Prior to graduate school, she worked in various graduate and undergraduate admissions roles at both Georgetown and the University of Chicago. Outside of work, Kristen can be found spending time with her husband and two-year-old son, baking, running, listening to political podcasts, and reading.
