PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION DOCTORAL STUDENT AWARDED PRESTIGIOUS CONGRESSIONAL FELLOWSHIP

Elizabeth Vogel, a doctoral student in urban services/management at Old Dominion University, has been selected as a Congressional Fellow on Women and Public Policy for 2003 by the Washington, D.C.-based Women's Research and Education Institute (WREI). Vogel is one of only seven women chosen to receive the institute's highly competitive Capitol Hill fellowships, which are awarded on the basis of academic achievement and a demonstrated interest in the public policy process.

Vogel, who will begin the eight-month fellowship in January, will serve as a legislative correspondent, working with members of Congress on women's policy issues. WREI works to identify issues affecting women and their roles in the family, workplace and public arena, and to inform and help shape the public policy debate on these issues.

A native of Indianapolis, Vogel received her bachelor's degree in health administration and creative writing from Loretto Heights College's University Without Walls program. She received her master's in health services administration from the University of Michigan. Vogel has held a variety of positions in medical administration, including assistant director of hospitals at Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis and vice president for administration at the Pediatric Education and Research Foundation of the Children's Health System in Norfolk.

At Old Dominion, Vogel has twice received a Constant Fellowship from the College of Business and Public Administration and was named Outstanding Ph.D. Student for 2000-01. She has served as president of the Ph.D. Association for the Urban Services Program and is a member of Phi Beta Phi and Pi Alpha Alpha Honor Society for Public Administration.
