Logistics Officer – Shane Martin

Shane was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois before coming to Marquette for undergrad in 2015. I graduated in 2019 with a BS in Interdisciplinary International Affairs.  I worked as data analyst for a year before coming back to Marquette Graduate School for Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE). I got interested in my graduate program because I lived in Global Village, a Living Learning Community here on campus for Marquette students and exchange students. Currently, I am the Graduate Assistant for the AMU where I oversee the DSA-Marketing office. I joined GSO this year because I am interested in bringing students together and helping them make the most of their Marquette Experience.
