This fall, Liz will be entering graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin in the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, pursuing a master of global policy studies. She earned her bachelor's in anthropology and sociology in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern University. Her research interests include urban sociology, inequality, race, class -- all of which culminated in the completion of an honor's thesis on working-class students and their enrollment in private, elite universities. Along with her strong interest in research, Liz has a passion in exploring new cultures, having participated in exchange programs to Japan, South Korea, and interning with the Social Entrepreneur Corps in the Dominican Republic and Haiti through the Global Engagement Summit Institute. She has also interned at the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs with the U.S. Department of State, and will be joining the Foreign Service upon the completion of her graduate studies.
