Dr. Olson started at SUU in the fall of 2015 and is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology in the History, Sociology, and Anthropology Department. Liz earned her H.B.A. in Anthropology at the University of Utah in 2002 and went on to complete her M.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology at Case Western Reserve University in 2004 and 2009. Before coming to SUU, she taught at the University of California, Merced, Loyola University, Chicago, and Allegheny College. She currently teaches courses on cultural anthropology, medical anthropology, ecological anthropology, global health, and community development. Liz is a dynamic lecturer, but also engages students in small-group discussions and interactive learning strategies in all of her classrooms. She is excited to be collaborating with other SUU faculty to team-teach in the Jumpstart general education program. Students in Liz’s upper division courses are able to do many hands-on research projects in our community so that they will be well prepared for the professional and academic paths they pursue post-graduation. Liz joined the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in the spring of 2018 in the role of Associate Director and is pleased with this opportunity to work with the faculty at SUU to give them support in becoming always better educators and mentors.
