Dr. Anne Groggel is an Assistant Professor of Sociology who joined the North Central College faculty in 2019. She has an M.A. from University of Chicago, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from Indiana University.  Her current and future work explores how offline and online interactions are framed by race and gender. She examines the gendered dynamics of intimate partner violence, sexual consent, judicial decision-making, and emotional labor. She was selected by Australian National University as an inaugural fellow of the Role-Taking Project to conduct experimental research on negative consequences facing workers dealing with intimate partner violence.

In the Sociology Department, Dr. Groggel teaches courses such as Research Methods, Family, and Introduction to Sociology. Her most recent article was co-authored with former students reporting findings collected through in-class research assignments.
