Patricia Cranton was affiliated with the University of New Brunswick in Canada and Teachers College, Columbia University in the United States. She held positions at McGill University, Brock University, University of New Brunswick, St. Francis Xavier University, and Penn State University. Patricia taught courses in transformative learning for 20 years, and wrote/edited several books, including The Handbook of Transformative Learning: Theory, Research and Practice (co-edited with Ed Taylor, 2012).

In 2014, she was inducted into the International Hall of Fame for Adult and Continuing Education. In 2016, Patricia Cranton was a recipient of the Order of Canada.

We deeply mourn the loss of author, teacher, and friend Patricia Cranton. An outstanding contributor to the fields of Adult and Higher Education, and to Transformative Learning in particular, she will live on through her work and in our memories.
