It is my honor to serve the University of Mary Washington as the Vice President for Equity and Access and Chief Diversity Officer.
Diversity is central to the mission of public liberal arts and essential in the pursuit of academic excellence. To that end, we strive to grant broad access to a learning and working environment where equity and inclusion are habits of mind, woven into all aspects of our programmatic and administrative activities university wide.
I look to build upon the good work already in progress and am heartened by our collective sense of urgency to self- assess and ensure that all members of our community, across all identities, beliefs, and circumstances thrive and are supported to embrace the world of possibilities here at UMW and beyond.
I invite you to take advantage of the opportunities to participate and contribute to this important work by joining community discussions, sharing leadership to accomplish our goals, reflecting on ways you impact the experience of students and staff, and having respectful courageous conversations to bring about growth and change.
The website is well underway to provide information about what guides our work, current activities, resources for questions and concerns, important partnerships and events and opportunities for your involvement. If there is something you are looking for that cannot be found here, please contact me. Your ideas, suggestions and feedback are valued and appreciated.
With highest regard,
Sabrina C. Johnson
Vice President for Equity and Access and Chief Diversity Officer
