Ph.D., California (Berkeley)
Anne Gregory is an assistant professor in the Psy.D. program in school psychology. Dr. Gregory's work addresses the persistent trend that African-American adolescents are issued school suspension and expulsion at higher rates than adolescents from other groups. Through research and intervention, she aims to address this trend by strengthening characteristics of teachers, classrooms, and schools associated with the successful schooling of African-American students. Her research interests also include disproportionality in school discipline sanctions, teacher-student relationships, and teacher professional development. Dr. Gregory has published in journals such as the Journal of School Psychology, Educational Researcher, American Journal of Community Psychology, School Psychology Review, and the Journal of Educational Psychology. She served on the American Psychological Association's task force on resiliency and strength in black children and adolescents and consults with school districts on how to reduce suspension rates. Dr. Gregory has also recently practiced as a licensed psychologist.
