Dr. Anne Ghost Bear treasures her work at Southern Nazarene University and has served as the Tulsa Campus Director since 2002. She is a Professor and recently accepted the role as interim program director for SNU’s Criminal Justice degree program. As SNU-Tulsa Director, Anne loves her close work with home campus colleagues as she oversees on-site operational and facility functions and implements or supports academic functions. She is passionate about working with adult learners, adjunct faculty, and her talented teammates. Anne is also the Home Campus Liaison, Weather Person, Security Officer, Equipment Mover, Mail Pickup/Deliverer, and occasional handy person, so the variety and element of surprise that each day at a satellite campus can bring is what she describes as fun!
Anne is thankful for very meaningful work representing SNU on the Greenwood Cultural Center Board of Directors (Education and Strategic Planning committees). She also enjoys her work on the Family Hope House Board of Directors and with the National Association of Branch Campus Administrators, Council of Oklahoma Extended Campus Administrators, and the Christian Adult Higher Education Association.
Anne and her husband, John, have three extraordinary grown children and four perfect grandchildren. A cradle Episcopalian whose father was an Episcopal bishop, Anne and John love their long-term involvement in their St. Luke’s Tulsa Episcopal Church family.
Hobbies and Fun Fact: Grandchildren, family/friends, tap dancing, snow skiing, reading mysteries, and lived in Cambridge, England for a year as a fifth grader.
