As the Democratic Engagement Manager, Elizabeth Netcher strives to get all students registered and voting! Elizabeth works with established organizations on campus like Turn Up, Turn Out (TUT), UMich Votes, and other worthwhile organizations that support civic engagement. By fostering relationships, both on and off-campus, building up our UMich Votes Coalition, and creating programming around voting and voting rights we can all help to build up the University of Michigan’s student voter turnout. Elizabeth has always had a passion for democratic engagement and making sure students are civic ready.

Elizabeth received her Bachelor of Arts from DePauw University in Communication and Studio Art and received her Master of Arts from Western Michigan University in Higher Education and Student Affairs leadership. Wanting to further civic learning and democratic engagement Elizabeth came to the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor to lead the charge on student voter turnout at the best higher education institution!
