Elizabeth (Beth) Steiner has worked on many projects under the direction of Professor Jaimie Bleck. Steiner helped with the data collection for and the editing process of Professor Bleck’s upcoming book, Electoral Politics in Africa Since 1990: Continuity in Change.  She also aided in drafting the midline report for Professor Bleck’s project studying small-scale governance and uniform distribution in Malawi for Catholic Relief Services. She is currently studying abroad in London, but will return to Professor Bleck’s research team in the spring. 

Steiner also participated in the Center for Social Concern’s International Summer Service Learning Program in Gulu, Uganda. While in Uganda, she lived with the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and worked in a rural maternity clinic.
