Elizabeth H. Jones holds a doctorate in Organization and Management from Capella University. As an Associaate Professor of Business at Notre Dame of Maryland University, Dr. Jones focuses directly on the interplay between leadership context and leadership expression for both undergraduate and graduate students. She is dedicated to facilitating deep understanding of the leader within each person. Melding scholarship with her practical leadership experience, she has written or refined much of the university’s leadership curriculum; several of her courses are central to the school’s new graduate certificate in leadership. Her research interests include women’s leadership, authenticity in leadership, leadership’s dark side, and issues in teaching leadership. Committed to breaking barriers in high-quality education, she is currently the principal investigator for four Lumina Foundation grants that support course redesign of introductory courses in economics, history, philosophy, and biblical studies into fully online versions to better serve the needs of NDMU’s adult learners. As faculty fellow through a state-wide grant from Complete College America, she mentors three Maryland community colleges as they redesign developmental math courses under the grant. Dr. Jones is also a seasoned leader and executive. She managed an award-winning technical division from 2002 until 2010 for the Department of Defense, where she worked for more than three decades prior to her retirement from federal service.
