Maggie Hansen

Director
Fueled by denim jumpsuits and nerd radio

With experience in landscape architecture, contemporary art and mission-driven design practice, Maggie brings vision, humor, perspective, and organization to Small Center. As Director, Maggie works to foster a collaborative and creative work environment for both students and staff, overseeing donor relationships, funding, and on-campus and off- campus partnerships. She imbues all of Small Center’s work with a strategic vision that combines a pragmatic approach and strong ethical core. Outside the office, Maggie can usually be found hanging out with her gangly puppy and side kick, Tina Turner.
