Ford School student Elle Beard was profiled by the University Record as an outstanding U-M senior
Each year, the University Record features stories of outstanding graduates in its pre-commencement issue. Beard was chosen as a representative of the Ford School's first undergraduate class because, according to Robert Axelrod, "The clarity, depth and sophistication of Ms. Beard's oral presentation as well as her written analysis showed she has the skills and motivation to be a success in the world of policy analysis." After graduation, Beard hopes to pursue an interest in globalization and international cooperation issues in Washington D.C.
