Teaching Experience

Elizabeth Donakey enjoys teaching at Brigham Young University where students and instructors learn together. She has based her career on the belief that, “If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things” (AoF 13). Elizabeth loves seeing her students make personal connections with the material through class discussions. She has taught Humanities and Art History courses.


Elizabeth’s research focuses on twentieth- and twenty-first-century art.

It is important to Elizabeth that every student feels safe and welcome at BYU. She wants each student to know they are capable. Student success of any kind cannot come without the support of professors and university services, so she strives to encourage students and provide ample opportunities for them to succeed (either academically or otherwise).
