Data & Leadership Coach

Anne Oxenreider has worked in higher education since 2005, focusing on student success, strategic planning, institutional research, and teaching. Since 2013, she has served on the executive leadership team of two community colleges and reported directly to and regularly advised the college president.  

Highlights of her experience include: 

  • Directing institutional strategic planning from input through planning to board approval in 12 months through largely virtual facilitation during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic 
  • Overseeing the design and implementation of a retention initiative that increased the state progression metric from below the state average to the excellence level 
  • Redesigning academic program review processes to utilize more data and engagement with program coordinators 
  • Conducting a quantitative analysis of the effect of state policy on Black students’ access to college, which led to a significant award from a regional foundation

She has also served her community as a foster parent for seven years, which deepened her cultural sensitivity and awareness of the experiences of marginalized children and families.

Anne holds dual master’s degrees from the University of North Carolina System: a master’s in higher education administration from Appalachian State University, and a master’s in English composition and rhetoric from Western Carolina University.

How has education changed your life/your family? 

Learning is not easy. I do and have always felt that way. I was in the lowest reading circle in primary school. I cried over division homework in elementary school. My mom, a teacher, told me, “Anne, you are smart. You have a hard time getting information in your head. Once it’s there, you’ve got it.” I was diagnosed with a learning disability late and graduated in the lower third of my high school class. My mom applied, registered, and dropped me off at a college where none of my friends went, and I became an honors student. To me, learning is the challenge of a lifetime.
