Dr. Patricia Brown, Instructor
Patricia Brown completed her B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of British Columbia, subsequently living in Toronto
while working in marketing and advertising at the University of Toronto. She went on to do an MBA at Simon Fraser
University and worked in the corporate sector for a number of years, moving into the ‘business’ of education as
Managing Director of a three-campus private college for a number of years. In 2000, Patricia relocated to the
University of Calgary in a management position. She was involved in developing a sustainable model for online and
face-to-face courses in graduate education, including the development of Canada’s first online doctorate in
education. During this time, Patricia supported her location community through service on a number of volunteer
boards, including the B.C. Career Colleges Association, a local credit union, a cooperative restaurant venture, and a
small start-up film company.
Patricia’s interest in organizational culture and leadership was the focus of her doctoral work, which she completed
in 2008. Her thesis research was a qualitative case study which investigated how women leaders in higher education
settings work with organizational cultural change as a result of globalization.
Patricia began teaching part time in the masters program in adult, community and higher education at the University
of Calgary and has held a permanent faculty position in the School of Business at the Southern Alberta Institute of
Technology, Calgary, Alberta, for the past two years, after working as a contract instructor for three years with SAIT.
