Suzanne Chod received her B.S. in Political Science from Bowling Green State University in 2002 and her PhD in the same field from Michigan State University in 2007.

She is currently the Coordinator for the Gender and Women's Studies Program, as well. While her primary conference and published work have been in the area of Congress, and specifically the House of Representatives, her current line of research examines pedagogy, the use of technology in college classrooms to foster civic engagement, and how to increase political efficacy of young people.
