Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion

pronouns: she / her

Dr. Georgina Dodge joined the University of Maryland as the inaugural Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion in 2019 after serving in similar roles for nearly 20 years. As a first-generation college student, Dodge brings a unique perspective as an individual who took an unconventional path to educational and professional success. Prior to her career in academics, she served in the U.S. Navy as an electronics technician and upon completion of her six-year enlistment term began her pursuit of an Associates degree from a community college and continued to build on her education with a Bachelors from the University of California Irvine, followed by an MA and PhD from UCLA. Her scholarship on race, gender, and cultural studies informs her current practice.

Along with her various memberships to professional organizations like the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA) and Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD), Dodge organized the Women of Color Caucus within the Society for the Study of Multi-Ethnic Literatures of the United States and has served in several other change-making positions throughout her career.
