  • B.S., Behavioral Science, College of Lifelong Learning, 2001

Professional Background

Beth, a parent of four children and grandparent of four, is interested in equality for all people in all areas that affect our lives--education, social/friendship ties, work environments, housing options, recreation opportunities, and more. Beth enjoys organizing and presenting best practices to participants at the NH Leadership Series. Watching people change and broaden their expectations for themselves and/or their children is exciting to her--but even more exciting is watching them become involved in their communities and in public life.

Beth Dixon was honored in May 2011 with the Presidential Award of Excellence, an award given annually to five staff members who have demonstrated excellence through outstanding performance in their positions and a record of dedication to, and a concern for, the University community. Throughout the past 20 plus years of Beth’s tenure at the IOD, she has been responsible for growing a cornerstone program of the organization, the NH Leadership Series. As a result of Beth’s leadership and organizational talents, over 800 individuals with disabilities, their families, and graduate students have been trained in evidence-based practices to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities, their families, and their communities.


The New Hampshire Leadership Series has been supporting and challenging NH self-advocates and family members to further develop, strengthen and utilize their leadership skills since 1988. With 1000 graduates, we are a state that is strong on leadership and advocacy that is initiated and driven by our leadership graduates.
