Liv Thomas

Program Manager

Here in Honors, I… manage the internal processes that help keep the program running and facilitate communication and collaboration between the rest of our team. This means every day looks a little different and can include things like working with academic departments to hire faculty for Honors courses, updating our quarterly time schedule, and thinking about new ways to streamline our office operations.

I like thinking about & studying… approaches to care and advocacy that exist outside of carceral practices, particularly as they relate to birth work and postpartum support. I also love reading and learning about a wide range of seemingly random topics, from the deep sea and plants native to our region, to mutual aid practices and household DIYs.

My first week in college… I signed up for way too many clubs and activities! I was so excited to start making connections and step out of my comfort zone that I went a bit overboard. One of my boldest choices was joining the Women’s Rugby team, where I ended up meeting many people who I still consider some of my closest friends.
