Anee Korme attended Temple University’s Fox School of Business, where she received her Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. She then went on to attend the University of Maryland, where she earned her Master in Higher Education and she is currently getting her Master of Business Administration from the University of Baltimore.
Anee has held positions with several universities and community organizations, including the Student Success Office at the University of Maryland, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, The National Council for Community and Education Partnerships, The Diversity Awareness Partnership, and, most recently, since September of 2014, is working as the Associate Director for Student Diversity and Development at Towson University.
Her journey as a social justice advocate and educator began in the fall of 2003 when she moved from Prince George’s County to a homogeneously black and low-income community in North Philadelphia to attend Temple University. Seeing the contrast between a thriving university with jobs, wealth, and power, in the middle of an economically failing community made up of folks who looked just like her, was the turning point that propelled her into a career rooted in social justice and equity building.
She is extremely proud of the work that she has done to create thriving spaces for minoritized communities in education. Success for her is the ability to create harmony in spaces while holding multiple truths.
