UW Sociology Alumni Elizabeth Bennet Atwood


Elizabeth Bennett Atwood (MA, 2011) is currently Assistant to the Associate Provost for Educational Attainment at Colorado State University. One half of her job is supporting student success initiatives at CSU in order to improve retention and graduation rates. She is researching High Impact Practices and their effectiveness at improving graduation rates. She also focuses on First Generation Students more specifically, how they perceive interactions with faculty members and how those perceptions affect their persistence and graduation rates. The other half of her job is supporting the Reinvention Center at CSU, which is a network of research universities committed to improving undergraduate education. Most members of the Center are vice presidents or vice provosts of undergraduate education at their institutions. Liz handles everything on the administrative/logistical side of things. She functions as an office manager, budget manager, conference planner, web developer, grant writer, and researcher. Needless to say, she is never bored!
