William Peace University Names Dr. Elizabeth Kusko
as Visiting Assistant Professor
Four-Year Baccalaureate University Welcomes Political Science Instructor
with Three Years of Professional Experience
RALEIGH, NC, Sept. 20, 2013 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that Elizabeth Kusko, MA, DA, has been named visiting assistant professor for the university’s political science department. In this position, Dr. Kusko will be responsible for preparing and teaching classes within her discipline, specifically on American Politics and Public Administration and Criminal Justice, as well as advising students, conducting scholarship and research in her field, and supporting other activities as needed within her department.
Prior to this position, Kusko served as an affiliate faculty member in the political science department at Idaho State University in Pocatello, where she taught Introduction to American Government and Introduction to Politics. Kusko earned her Doctor of Arts in political science at Idaho State, a Master of Arts in political science from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and a Bachelor of Arts in political science, psychology and international studies at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania. Her professional affiliations include the American Political Science Association, American Association of University Women and Phi Kappa Phi.
“Those who study political science at William Peace University learn the essentials of how politics, government and the law intersect and make a tremendous impact in our everyday lives,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Elizabeth will help our students learn how to effectively review and communicate what is occurring in our political scene both locally and internationally by providing an expert perspective on real-world activities.”
“Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to teach and impart knowledge to others in a professional career, and I am pleased to have that opportunity with William Peace University,” Kusko said. “I want students in my political sciences classes to be excited and exhilarated by the world that surrounds them and to understand the role they can play to shape and influence government and politics in society.”
