Our 2021-2022 Officers

Nate Griesdorf
President
Nate is a senior year construction management major. He is someone who seeks love and gratification from working towards his goals. He finds working hard to beat the deadline of a term paper and making conscious decisions to direct the course of his day allows him to use his mind more than any instantly gratifying activity. People often say he is quiet, compassionate, and skilled at facilitating peace between others. He is especially drawn to working with others to accomplish the construction of affordable housing.

Kevin Cusack
Collegiate Challenge Chair

Kevin is a second year Master’s student studying Applied Physiology & Kinesiology and Philosophy. Kevin was originally inspired to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity from one of his colleagues who volunteered with Habitat in the past, and Kevin always wanted to get more involved with it but wasn’t aware of the opportunity on campus. Kevin considers his experience in Habitat to have been absolutely wonderful so far—claiming it’s the people who make it great. He believes that volunteering one’s time to build homes  speaks to the character of those who serve. The club members, site overseers, and others involved with this work make it great.
