On Friday, Associate Dean for Inclusion and Belonging Cristina Garcia announced that Shantanique Johnson, the Associate Director of the Office of Multicultural Engagement (OME), has been promoted to Director of OME.
Monique Gore ‘06 previously held this position. Gore will start working at Wake Forest University in the fall.
Before serving as Associate Director of OME, Johnson served as Assistant Director for OME, Interim Director for LGBTQIA+ Life, and as a graduate research assistant in the psychology department, said Garcia.
Johnson helped start Hera’s Closet, which is a closet of gender-inclusive clothing in OME, the Mosaic Cupboard and Mosaic Minds program, which help lower-income students. She also developed a support and mentorship program for first-generation students, Garcia said.
“Shantanique’s experience and educational background in counseling and college student personnel, along with her collaborative, inclusive, strategic, student-center approach, position her well to serve as Gettysburg’s next Director of Multicultural Engagement,” Garcia said.
The college will launch a search to fill the Assistant Director of OME position.
