A Conversation with Elizabeth Kiss

Warden of the Rhodes Trust and former President of Agnes Scott College

New Books Network 2021

We speak with Elizabeth Kiss about the design and launch of the very successful SUMMIT initiative that led Agnes Scott College to be recognized as “the most innovative liberal arts college” in the U.S. SUMMIT features four distinctive elements that are a part of every Agnes Scott undergrad’s education: a global immersive experience, leadership, a personal Board of Advisors, and a digital portfolio. The initiative has played a crucial role in growing enrollment and stabilizing the finances of the College. Kiss left Agnes Scott in 2018 to become the head of the Rhodes Trust. She describes the exciting ways in which the Rhodes Trust has been transformed since she was a scholar herself in the 1980s.

David Finegold is the president of Chatham University.
