Greetings from Liz Sutton, new UHP Program Officer

With two weeks as the new Program Officer in the University Honors Program under my belt, it’s my pleasure to both introduce myself and welcome incoming students to the UHP.  We’re beginning our GWU journey together!

Raised in Galway, NY, I most recently spent nine years in Boston, MA – four years of undergraduate study at Tufts University and five years working at Harvard University where I also earned a master’s degree in education. When not working or studying I dance as much as possible!   While in Boston I choreographed for and performed with Tribe, the Dance Companyvisit YouTube for a look at one of my pieces.

2010 marks my eleventh year volunteering with Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY). I was an ambassador at the New York East seminar and the World Leadership Congress in Philadelphia in 1999 and have since volunteered in New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and right here in DC.  I also staffed the 2002 World Leadership Congress at GW, during which I lived in Thurston Hall!  I am also a die-hard New York Yankees fan and play soccer when time allows.

With an undergraduate degree in Comparative Religion and a master’s degree focused on Higher Education, my academic interests lie at the intersection of education, religion, and American public life. These interests include colleges and universities, with particular attention to curricular development and organizational development; religion in contemporary America with a focus on religion and politics; moral and ethical education; and philosophy of education.

I look forward to meeting Honors students and faculty and to spending many fruitful and fun years together!
