Andrew Hartman BA, M.Ed. PhD Candidate, Hub Project Team Leader
Andrew Hartman (They/Them) is a proud queer, Métis individual born and raised here on Treaty Six Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. Andrew is the proud zaza to their forever kitten, Luna. Before starting their Ph.D., Andrew worked for five years in Student Affairs providing holistic care and mentorship to undergraduate students, all while completing their Masters in Leadership in Higher Education. Andrew’s thesis aimed at understanding the role of shame in undergraduate students' persistence and help-seeking behaviour. Presently, Andrew is pursuing their Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology with their dissertation focusing on understanding the psychological processes of shame and disenfranchised grief in 2SLGBTQ survivors of traumatic gender-based violence. As a program evaluator, Andrew is currently evaluating OUTSaskatoon's queer housing program (i.e., Pride Home), OUTSaskatoon's gender-based violence prevention initiative. Andrew ambitiously takes on other projects which contribute directly to their PhD program outcomes, one of which is a lead role in the research and design of the CGPS' grad student onboarding platform (the grad hub). o In addition to Andrew's program evaluation work, they sit on the Saskatchewan chapter for the Canadian Evaluation Society as the Secretary.
John Malyk BSc MA Student, Hub Evaluation Framework
John was a double major in his undergrad earning both a BSc in Psychology, and a BSc in Natural Science at the University of Calgary in June 2019. John’s honours thesis aimed to explore how gay men understand and experience food and eating, in response to a body of literature that tends to problematize the eating of gay men. In addition, John’s research includes studying people’s perceptions of transgender survivors of sexual violence and the implications these perceptions may have for the justice system. John is currently pursuing a Masters in Applied Social Psychology. He will continue to focus on LGBTQ2S+ research topics, including: mental health and identity development. Working on the overall evaluation framework of the CGPS' onboarding platform, John says, "through this project I am interested in working with faculty more and understanding their views and concerns (I think it will be interesting). I am definitely also interested in getting more interview and survey building experience, I’m also excited for the things that I don’t yet realize will be interesting and useful skills/experiences to gain through the project!" Outside of school John loves hiking, travelling, and photography. He probably will not make it in the National Geographic, but his photos will make you say, “Ooh, neat.”

Lori Lisitza CMgr, PMgr, MCIM CGPS Executive Officer, Grad Hub Oversight
A self-declared life-long learner, being surrounded by students on an academic journey was a natural fit for Lori. Fast forward from coding in MS-DOS, Lori found that she has a knack for project management and paired that with media brokerage and indie music album design. Lori went on to study business administration at Memorial University and USask with a particular interest in management earning chartered management credentials in both Canada and the UK. Lori wears ‘several hats’ within the College of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies from being the Dean’s central support person and as a member of the Dean’s leadership team bringing leadership, development and oversight to a variety of special projects. When not at work you will find Lori at the barn, with a pair of skates in the trunk and a yellow ribbon on the bumper in support of Canada's troops.
