Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is built on the basic assumptions of the person-centered theory; people have an inherent motivation to improve, grow, and develop.  In my role as Field Director, I strive to build and support genuine relationships with, and between, students and field instructors.  I see myself as a facilitator and tend to focus on the importance of building empathetic helping relationships.  This lays the foundation of establishing a supportive learning environment in the two areas where field education occurs, field practicum site and the Competency Assessment field courses.  it is through these relationships that I can help students to achieve insight, independence, and development through the innate drive for growth.


Elizabeth "Liz" Dole-Izzo, MSW, LCSW graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies and a Masters in Social Work after serving in the US Air Force.  She has extensive practice experience as a medical social worker in a large hospital in Colorado Springs. In addition, Liz has worked with military families, families facing homelessness, victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault, and agencies and communities doing program and policy development. Liz has been with the Division of Social Work at the University of Wyoming as an Assistant Lecturer since 2006, has taught across the generalist and advanced generalist social work curriculum, and is currently the Director of Field Education.
