Solver of the Rubik’s Cube, rescuer of Zelda, and lover of Belgian waffles, Mark Kozitka comes to CNDLS from farm country in northern Minnesota. Mark is in his first year in the master’s degree in Learning and Design program. With a background ranging from parasail boat driving to legal research and curriculum design, Mark aims to focus his studies on the role of ethics as they relate to the ever-progressing technological landscapes. He hopes to gain insight and scholarship to help produce and implement policy, particularly in Higher Ed. and the government intelligence communities. A world traveler having schooled in England and Scotland at Oxford and the University of St. Andrews, Mark has also lived in the Middle East for the last five years. He also hopes his international experiences will bring different perspectives to the scholarship and design in his program, work, and beyond. In his free time, Mark can be found at Gold’s Gym prepping for physique shows, or at the frozen food isle bouncing between chicken and veg. His penchant for nostalgia keeps him young at heart and keeps him continuously adding to his LEGO and video game collection.
