UH alumna Elizabeth D. Rockwell has been named a board member of the University's Center for Public Policy.
CPP is an impartial research organization serving the city and state through demographic and political research, economic forecasting and public polling. It is part of the College of Social Sciences.
"We at the center are delighted to have Elizabeth Rockwell join our board," said CPP Director Richard Murray. "As a lifelong Houstonian, she brings a unique perspective and substantive knowledge of Houston issues that will be much appreciated at the center."
Rockwell is a fourth-generation Houstonian. She did all her schooling here, studying business at both UH and Rice University.
A widely recognized expert in investment, retirement and estate and tax planning, Rockwell is currently the executive director-investments with CIBC Oppenheimer Corp.
She is also deeply involved with the community's educational institutions. She endowed the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Career Services Center at the UH College of Business Administration and works with many other areas of the University.
"I followed the works of the Center for Public Policy ... long before
I ever became involved with the center," Rockwell said. "(Murray's) research
is invaluable to the Houston area, and it brings a lot of well-deserved
attention to the University."
