Anna L. Patton [she/hers], Ph.D.
Impact Leadership Village Director
100-B Bowen Residence Hall
Dr. Anna L. Patton (she/her/hers) serves as the director of the Impact Leadership Village in Bowen Hall. Anna completed her Ph.D. in Educational Studies and Cultural Foundations with a concentration in Educational Philosophy from UNC Greensboro in 2017. Prior to her doctoral focus on educational philosophy and educational studies, Anna’s work and scholarship stemmed from her M.Ed. in College Student Affairs Administration from the University of Georgia. Anna’s dissertation work explored the concept of ‘student orientations’ through the philosophical lens of hermeneutic phenomenology. While at UNCG, Anna taught multiple sections of Philosophies of Education for both General Education requirements as well as Honors College students. Anna has been published in multiple peer-reviewed outlets including The Journal of Curriculum Theorizing, The South Atlantic Philosophy of Education Society 2016 Yearbook, and The Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs. As a social justice educator, Anna is passionate about developing equitable higher education environments where students are encouraged to interrogate hegemonic narratives of college life and education. In her free time, Anna enjoys spoiling her dog, Mr. Spock; singing along to Moana with her three year old niece; pulling for the Wolfpack as a proud Psych/Spanish alum of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences; and working on home improvement projects, of which she has little to no knowledge of how to complete [surprisingly, she has only been electrocuted once, so far]!
