College of Liberal Arts

Dr. Jeremy Bennett is an Assistant Professor in the College of Liberal Arts at Ashford University. He holds a PhD in Sociology, a Master of Business Administration in Organizational Management, a Master of Science in Organizational Change and Development from Georgia State University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from University of Georgia. Dr. Bennett has experience working in the hospitality field as a food and beverage director and general manager at various country clubs. He started with Ashford in early 2012, teaching both business and sociology courses. His favorite part of teaching is opening up the world to students who have previously never considered other cultures and societies. Dr. Bennett’s background in business, hospitality, and training has informed his teaching style by allowing him to understand the varied backgrounds of his students and adapt to helping them on a personal level. He advises individuals in his classes to “try and stay a step ahead and complete work early. This will allow life’s little hiccups to not get you behind. Review the syllabus in detail and make time for the class from the start.” Dr. Bennett and his wife Kristen welcomed their first son in 2006 and their second in 2013.
