Angela Elliott, Professor of English (tenured), joined the Centenary Faculty in 1986, as a Drew graduate in the field of twentieth-century British and American literature and an internationally published Pound scholar. She has presented papers in England, Italy and Canada, as well as at major conferences throughout the United States.  Her teaching at Centenary features modern poetry, ethnic American and international literature, women’s writings, the Bible as literature and, most recently, literature of the American West. She has received awards and honors for distinguished teaching at the undergraduate level.  At the graduate level she has mentored students in Native American literature and in modern poetry.  In 2006, as a lifelong writer and teacher of poetry, she was named Poet in Residence at Centenary.

Dr. Elliott’s service to the College has been driven by dedication to academic excellence and concern for issues involving the Faculty’s continual growth and wellbeing.  She helped design and implement the English Major and the M.A. in Literature Program.  She twice served as Chair of the Faculty Council and currently represents her department on the Faculty Senate.  She advised Phi Theta Kappa for ten years, and for as many years was a leader of the Integrated Studies Committee, which she founded.  It was a chartered volunteer committee of faculty devoted to the integration of issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and class into the curriculum.  Faculty seminars, guest speakers, and curricular initiatives contributed to the enrichment of academic life on campus.
