Georgina Dodge

Vice Chair

Dr. Georgina Dodge is Vice Chair of the Stanley Center for Peace and Security’s Board of Directors and Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Maryland. She has held similar roles in higher education for nearly 20 years. As a first-generation college student, Dodge took an unconventional path to educational and professional success. Prior to her career in academics, she served in the US Navy as an electronics technician; after completing her six-year enlistment term, she began her pursuit of an associate’s degree from a community college. She continued to build on her education with a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine followed by a master’s degree and a doctorate from UCLA. Her scholarship on race, gender, and cultural studies informs her current practice. Along with her various memberships in professional organizations like the Women of Color Caucus within the Society for the Study of Multi-Ethnic Literatures of the United States and the Association on Higher Education and Disability, Dodge is on the board of the Association of Title IX Administrators and the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ Advisory Committee on Minority Veterans.
