Interim Director of Diversity Initiatives
I live to empower those around me. It is my privilege to be at the University of Redlands to serve and support the well-being of all Bulldogs. Presently, I am the interim director of Diversity Initiatives, leveraging my unique background and perspective to provide leadership to the Office of Campus Diversity and Inclusion.
I serve as vice president of the Black Student, Faculty, Staff, and Administrators Association (BSFSAA). Fair and justice policies and processes are vital to creating a diverse and inclusive campus. For this reason, I am an Equity Advisor and former co-chair of the University-wide Council on Inclusiveness & Community.
Senior Associate Director
Hello, I am Pamela Allen. I work in enrollment in the School of Business. I have been with the university for over 10 years and find my passion in helping others. The highlight of my job is helping adult learners on their educational journey to achieve their goals. The reason I am an Equity Advisor is because I am committed to ensuring that anyone that seeks help through this process receives the support they need.
Head Coach Women's Volleyball
Hi, I’m Lisa, the Head Volleyball Coach and NCAA Designee for Diversity and Inclusion. I came to the University of Redlands from New York six years ago and I love my roles on campus as Volleyball Coach and working with the Office of Equity and Title IX. I believe that robust systems of justice include support for everyone involved and a thorough understanding of the process. I am committed to helping folks feel empowered and to bringing thoughtful advocacy and guidance every step of the way.
Race & Ethnic Studies
Hi! I am Jen. I am a mom, an advocate for more humane criminal justice policies, and a professor in the Race and Ethnic Studies Program, where I have taught since 2007. I want to be an Equity advisor because I care deeply about creating fair and just processes to support people through trying times in their lives. We all deserve to be heard, supported and valued in our workplaces, and to have someone walk beside us as we wade through sometimes complex and intimidating bureaucratic processes.
Hello, my name is Meagin Ramiro-Jackson, please feel free to call me Meg! I’ve been a member of the Great Y Circus at the Redlands YMCA for over 21 years. As a youth instructor I’ve found joy and meaning in helping others achieve their goals and to see themselves through kinder eyes. As an Event Services team member I am lucky to come in contact with many different people on campus including staff, faculty, administrators, and students and it is my hope and honor to be a support person for our Bulldog community and to share compassion and kindness especially to those in need.
Sr. Associate Director of Enrollment
School of Business
I grew up in both the United Kingdom and Zambia in Sub Saharan Africa – two polar opposites in many respects but similar in many more. The intensity of our struggles might be different but we tend to face them the same way – seeking justice, mercy and respect. One of my father’s mantras was “justice delayed is justice denied” as I have grown older, I now couple that with “what is just can be very different from what is legal – know the difference.” I am interested in helping and supporting those who might not feel they have a voice, find their voice especially when it seems that no one is listening.
