About Kristina Lind

I knew, on my very first visit to PSU, that this was the program for me, despite the fact I visited on a very cold day in a typical NH winter. I fell in love with the community in which PSU is located, the faculty I met, but mostly with the students who make PSU such a special place.

Now as Program Coordinator, I am committed to supporting a strong academic social work curriculum that both attracts and fosters a passion for social and economic justice in our local, national, and global communities. I am always looking for opportunities to engage students in professional activities such as participation on state-wide committees, in professional presentations, and in social work related field trips.

I am also the Coordinator of the Child Welfare Title IV-E Educational Tuition Partnership. In this role I am responsible for the Child Welfare and Child Maltreatment courses and try to recruit those students who have a passion for working within NH’s child protection system. I am faculty advisor to the department’s Phi Alpha Honor Society.

Whether you are a prospective student, a parent of a prospective student, a current student or just a curious individual, please feel free to email me if you would like further information. I welcome all interested students to meet with one of our faculty and to visit if you are in the area. It goes without saying, that if you are alum, I and others here want to hear about how you are doing so email, drop by, or call. Follow the program’s news on our Alumni Facebook Page.
