Elizabeth Stanley, a resilience expert and U.S. Army veteran, examines examines the neurobiology of stress, trauma and resilience in military personnel and other people who function in high-stress environments.
“The community at Georgetown was both a challenging and safe space to learn, practice critical analysis skills, develop presentation and communication abilities and to explore what kind of impact I might want to make after graduation.”
“As a military service member, I have realized that we shouldn’t hesitate to share our military experiences. I learn a tremendous amount from my classmates in other industries and have found they learn much from my own experience as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army.”
“A sense of belonging is a basic human need, and the Georgetown community has done a great job making me feel welcome while integrating me into the broader community.”
