Following an extensive national search, Georgina Dodge has been named Bucknell University’s new associate provost for diversity, equity & inclusion. Dodge comes from the University of Iowa where, since 2010, she was chief diversity officer, associate vice president and Title IX coordinator. Dodge, who also will hold the title of adjunct associate professor of English, joins Bucknell on Aug. 1.
Dodge played an important role in positively shaping the University of Iowa’s culture and was a strong advocate for the rights of all members of the Iowa community, according to a statement from the university.
“Georgina’s record demonstrates that she is a fearless, values-based advocate who understands how matters of diversity, equity and inclusion operate in a university setting,” said Bucknell Provost Barbara Altmann. “Her academic background and her real gift for addressing and working with a broad range of audiences make her exactly the right person to step into this position at Bucknell.”
