  • Elliott Cole, Program Associate for Communications

    As Program Associate for Communications, Elliott works closely with both the Program Officer for Communications and the Communications Director to communicate ACTA's mission to various stakeholders. He contributes daily news updates onto ACTA’s website, creates social media posts, as well as provides research and writing support for newsletters and the website. Elliott is from Leicester, England and recently graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, where he received a B.A. in Political Science, and minors in Economics and History. He was a member of the Pi Sigma Alpha honor society, the university cycling club, and student government, and he founded the British Student Organization. Elliott likes to cycle and stay active in his spare time, but also enjoys watching historical documentaries, sports, and keeping up with the news. He is a lifelong fan of his English football (soccer) team, Liverpool F.C., but also cheers for the Arkansas Razorbacks.
