Wilton Wright

Assistant Professor of English

Wilton Wright joined the William Penn Faculty as an Assistant Professor of English in the fall of 2019. He previously held an adjunct professor position for the University. He specializes in rhetoric and composition, gender studies, and film studies.

Professor Wright is a strong believer that students do their best work when they feel comfortable working with their professor. To build a relationship based on respect and trust, Professor Wright requires individual conferences with each student. During these conferences, he helps students with ideas and projects while allowing the student to be comfortable working with him. He tailors each class to the students’ needs and goals. This involves giving students the opportunity to lead class discussions, co-design workshops, and have Q&A sessions about upcoming assignments.

Outside of the classroom, Professor Wright is a film enthusiast. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Dr. Sam Allen Wright, and taking care of his dogs.
