Creating a more diverse and inclusive university community is one of the university’s top priorities. Others are promoting a culture of service and community, reimagining the liberal arts for the digital age, and immersing students in applied and impactful learning experiences.
“Sabrina Johnson will provide leadership in advancing diversity and inclusion as essential components of the university’s mission,” Paino said in announcing the appointment. “We look forward to having her help define UMW’s commitment to developing and sustaining an equitable, inclusive, and supportive working and learning environment for all.”
In her new role, Johnson provides strategic and visible leadership for these initiatives. She has been at Mary Washington for more than two decades, most recently serving as associate vice president for human resources.
Johnson earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in public administration from Virginia Commonwealth University. A graduate of the College of William & Mary’s Marshall-Wythe School of Law, she is a member of the Virginia State Bar.
