August 24, 2020

Assistant Professor E’Lisha V. Fogle, Ph.D., is the college’s newest full-time tenure-track faculty member teaching International Tourism and Human Resources in Hospitality this semester.

Before joining CPP, Fogle began her career as a Food Service Resource Manager with Sodexo, where she worked for three years aiding more than 20 healthcare systems across 13 states. Throughout her academic and professional career, she has interned with Walt Disney World Resorts, Ecotourism Australia, and advised the Conservation and Tourism Society of Livingstone, Zambia. During her doctoral studies at Clemson University in South Carolina, she instructed several tourism related courses and taught as an adjunct faculty at Virginia State University, her undergraduate alma mater.

As an emerging teacher-scholar, Fogle conducted research in the U.S., Central America, Australia and Africa, with her dissertation work titled, “Rising Black Voices of the Global South: Understanding Locals’ Relationship with Tourism in Livingstone, Zambia.” Her research focuses on the use of more culturally sensitive methodologies to investigate critical tourism issues related to gender and community participation in lesser economically developed contexts—specifically Africa.
