Photo of Brittany AtkinsonUNCG staff member and alumna Brittany Atkinson (Business Affairs) begins graduate study this fall at the University of Birmingham, U.K., through a prestigious Rotary International Foundation Global Grant. She is a double alumna – she received her B.A. from UNCG in 2010 with full university honors and her MBA from UNCG in 2014. As a Spartan undergraduate she studied abroad in Germany and South Africa.

She will be pursuing an MSc in Global Cooperation and Security at Birmingham and plans to continue toward her doctorate. Her research interests center around exploring tactics that lead to successful nonviolent conflict by comparing examples of nonviolent conflict situations. She will also affiliate with the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Center in Birmingham and make connections with the New Underground Railroad in Uganda, which seeks safety for LGBTQ populations in the region.

She has been in the PCard Specialist role in Business Affairs since December 2012, and held several positions on campus during her career as a student. Her last day at UNCG will be July 31, so you have a few days if you want to stop by or send her a note of best wishes.
