Guided by ASU's mission to be measured not by whom we exclude, but rather by whom we include, Dr. Hassan works to forge relationships between ASU and diverse communities throughout the state. Kenja has brought college preparation programs to American Indian youth on reservations, orchestrated national dialogs on pressing issues in the Nation’s capital, guided student service projects across Arizona, and launched a series of reports on the status of Arizona’s diverse communities, including the State of Black Arizona which went on to thrive as an independent community based non-profit. She is currently a liaison to African- and Asian-American communities and to civic leadership organizations representing the interests of minority populations.
Dr. Hassan holds an A.B. in Religion from Princeton University and a M.A. in Religious Studies from Arizona State University both with an emphasis on American Indian traditions. Her Ph.D. is from the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation with an emphasis on health disparities related to HIV and the influence of patient / provider relationships on health outcomes.
