Lindsay Lee graduated from the University of Tennessee as a Haslam Scholar in 2014. She was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship in 2013, funding two full years of graduate study at the University of Oxford. At Oxford, she completed a masters in applied statistics and a masters of public policy. She has continued the disability advocacy she began at UT while in the United Kingdom, becoming the Disabled Students Officer for Oxford and organizing disability-themed academic events in the field of law. She currently is working with the World Health Organization analyzing data from the Model Disability Survey, the first international, standardized general population survey about the lived experience of disability.
During Lindsay's time at UT, she founded Campus Disability Advocates, an organization that advocated for and supported disabled students by hosting events and liaising with the administration. She was also a member of the City of Knoxville Mayor's Council on Disability Issues, an opinion columnist for the Daily Beacon, a member of Central Program Council's Issues Committee, an executive candidate in two student government elections, and a Torchbearer Award recipient. She majored in mathematics and Spanish and minored in Portuguese.
In her free time, Lindsay enjoys cooking, drawing, writing, Netflix, her UT snuggie, and screaming at the TV during UT sporting events.
