Dr. Liz Litzler

Past Chair

Liz Litzler, Ph.D., is the Director of the Center for Evaluation & Research for STEM Equity (CERSE) at the University of Washington and an Affiliate Assistant Professor in UW Sociology.  She comes to all her research and evaluation work with an equity lens. The program evaluation projects she works on are focused on improving the representation and inclusion of systemically marginalized students. She infuses her equity and inclusion principles into the way she operates CERSE, engages employees, and plans events. She has presented on ways to infuse equity and inclusion into evaluation, research, and workshop facilitation. Her social science research has used critical race theories such as Community Cultural Wealth to describe the experiences of systemically marginalized students in engineering.
