Elizabeth Weise

Business, Economics, and Public Policy
New York City, New York

Elizabeth looks forward to joining a community of students passionate about engaging in civil discourse and learning from each other. She is a student in the Wharton School hoping to major in Business, Economics, and Public Policy (BEPP). She also plays on the Varsity Squash team and serves on the Wharton Dean’s Undergraduate Advisory Board.

By providing a distinct opportunity to engage across all four schools in an interdisciplinary way, the Fellows program rounds out my experience as a business major.

Elizabeth has combined her interest in athletics, education, and community service through a non-profit in New York called Street Squash, which seeks to expand access to academic resources and athletics. This has provided an opportunity for Elizabeth to serve the New York community and promote wellness through sport. At Penn, Elizabeth is curious to explore what wellness, service, citizenship, and dialogue mean, especially in relation to the local community.

She is interested in law, politics, and policy, believing strongly in the necessity of civil and empathetic dialogue for meaningful change. Her time working in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office taught her the value of diverse thought especially in terms of law and policy. She aspires to use the skills she learned in the District Attorney’s Office and her time as an SNF Paideia Fellow to engage with individuals whose backgrounds and views differ from her own.
