Meet Dr. Johnson
By Dominique Jeter (TheLorian)
Dr. Johnson is one of our new faculty members to arrive on campus and she is also one of the first Black female faculty that Loras College has ever had. She is originally from Kentucky, about sixty miles south of Cincinnati. Dr. Johnson likes to watch both professional and collegiate sports during her free time along with making crafts such as cards, crocheting, and volunteering. In addition, Johnson enjoys being in nature, watching leaves change color during the fall, and walking on the beach and waterfronts.
Dr. Johnson’s office is in the Center of Inclusion & Advocacy. While talking with Dr. Johnson she stated that,
“I want everyone to feel that there is a voice and space for them here in the office.”
Johnson is a co-advisor for Black Student Union and oversees the First-Generation Scholars Program. Her plans for this school year are to help students navigate and develop financial literacy, plan for their life after Loras, and connect with students who identify with the Black culture. If you want to meet Dr. Johnson, feel free to stop by her office as she has an open-door policy and would love to meet students face to face as well. Please welcome her to campus and give her any good food places or other recommendations you may have!
