Hannah Darr joins GRS Staff

My name is Hannah Darr and I am entering the role of Program Assistant for Global Resource Systems. I will be working closely with the service learning programs in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Uganda, in addition to providing any needed support to on-campus GRS activities. I graduated from Iowa State University with a B.S. in Global Resource Systems and Emerging Global Diseases. I enjoyed my adventure at Iowa State so much that I decided to stay!


I am originally from Indianola Iowa, famous for the National Hot Air Balloon Classic that the town hosts each summer. Although I grew up in Iowa and moved to Ames for school, I’ve had the opportunity to do quite a bit of traveling through research, work, and personal endeavors and in the last year have been on four different continents! I am very interested in topics related to global health, public service, and community development and am excited to keep learning as I enter this new position.
