Q&A with Elizabeth

At JWU, education is not confined to the four walls of the classroom. You’re not going to spend four years with your nose buried in a book, learning theories you may never get a chance to apply — you’re going to get out there and apply them, be it through internships, group projects, leadership opportunities, competitions and more.

What Is Your Favorite Teaching Moment?

I LOVE teaching a DEE course where I plan and execute our annual SEEM Leadership Conference alongside a selected group of students.
