Carolyn Coulter Wins Phi Theta Kappa Award

April 30, 2010

Assistant Professor of Sociology Carolyn Coulter captured a Paragon Award for New Advisors as part of Phi Theta Kappa's 2010 Hallmark Awards at the 92nd annual Phi Theta Kappa Convention, April 8-10, in Orlando, Fla.

The Philadelphia resident was recognized for serving as chapter advisor for fewer than five years for the Alpha Delta Mu Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at Atlantic Cape Community College.

Award-winning advisors are those who make significant contributions to the growth of individual members, serve as the chapter's advocate on campus and encourage the chapter to be involved on the local, regional and/or international level of the organization.

Coulter joined Atlantic Cape in January 2007. She teaches introduction to cultural geography, principles of sociology, world geography and contemporary social problems.

Previously, Coulter was an adjunct instructor at Reading Area Community College, Drexel University and Temple University.

She earned an associate degree from Montgomery County Community College, a bachelor's degree in film and media arts and a master's degree in anthropology from Temple University. She is pursuing a Ph.D. at Temple.

Coulter is a member of the American Anthropological Association.
