Alumnae Spotlight

Elle RupertElle Rupert '13

Elle Rupert received her Masters of Education in Community Engagement at Merrimack College one year after graduating from Gettysburg. Her research for this degree focused on the best practices for implementing social justice curriculum in the K-12 environment. During her year in graduate school, she served as part of a fellowship program that allowed her to work as the Program Coordinator for the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Community Development at St. John's Prep, an all-boys Catholic preparatory school in Massachusetts. It may seem that working at an all-boys high school after graduating with a degree in WGS is an odd fit, but this has proven to be a great environment to continue working with issues of gender!
