Just a quick note to extend our sincere congratulations to our dear friend and colleague, Liz Grimm Arsenault, on winning Georgetown’s Dorothy Brown Award for 2012. Awarded annually, the Dorothy Brown Award is presented by the Georgetown University Students Association on behalf of the undergraduate student body. Below is the text from the Award when it was first created in 2002 upon the retirement of Provost Dorothy Brown:

“We, the students of Georgetown University in celebration of her distinguished service to our community, hereby commission the Dorothy Brown Award to be presented annually at Georgetown Day to an outstanding member of the faculty who demonstrates a high level of commitment to the educational and extracurricular advancement of students and contributes significantly to the fulfillment of the Catholic and Jesuit mission of Georgetown University, as selflessly exemplified by the legendary namesake of this award.”

Liz is an Assistant Dean in the School of Foreign Service with the BSFS Program. She earned her Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University, her M.A. in Security Policy Studies from The George Washington University, and her B.A. in Government and History from The College of William & Mary.

Prior to her position as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Government at Georgetown University, she taught as a Visiting Instructor at the College of William & Mary.
