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.
