Elizabeth QuackenbushElizabeth Quackenbush is senior director of development for the College of Mass Communications and Information Studies.

She is responsible for seeking major gifts for the School of Journalism and Mass Communications and the School of Library and Information Science. The college's immediate priorities include:

  • Cocky’s Reading Express, a literacy outreach collaboration between the School of Library and Information Studies, the SC Center for Children’s Books and Literacy and the USC Student Government.
  • The SJMC Building Initiative, a capital campaign to relocate the School of Journalism and Mass Communications to its future home at the corner of Sumter and Greene.
  • Student Scholarships and Fellowships, endowed and non-endowed gifts that support the academic pursuits of undergraduate and graduate students.

An English graduate of the USC College of Arts and Sciences, Elizabeth earned her MA at Emory University in American Studies.

Elizabeth has more than ten years of fundraising experience and raised millions of dollars for non-profits such as Harvest Hope Food Bank and Volunteers of America of the Carolinas.

Preceding her fundraising career, Elizabeth was assistant producer for the Peabody-award winning WTBS documentary series, "Portrait of America." She co-authored two memoirs, one for Hamilton Jordan, former Chief of Staff of President Jimmy Carter and the other for philanthropist Cindy Nord.

Elizabeth worked in the public and private sector in advertising and public relations, leading the state of South Carolina's economic development efforts at the Development Board (now Department of Commerce) to market the state to a national and international business audience. She was executive producer for the SC Addy winning videos, "The New Face of Hunger" and "Children's Garden."

Elizabeth has one daughter, Sarah, a freshman at Brevard College in North Carolina.
