Robinson Named VP

Janice Robinson

TC General Counsel Janice Robinson has been named to the College’s newly created post of Vice President for Diversity and Community Affairs.

Robinson, who has also served as Executive Director for Diversity and Community as well as Assistant Professor in Higher Education, will stay on as General Counsel—a post that originated with her—until a replacement is hired.

TC President Susan Fuhrman thanked Robinson for “her years of intelligent, collaborative and creative work leading up to this distinguished appointment.”

Fuhrman said that elevating the Office of Community and Diversity to a position meriting its own vice presidential appointment fully recognized and backed its work as “central to our mission as an educational institution.”

Robinson received her J.D. from St. John’s University School of Law, and an M.A. and an Ed.M. from TC. She also has a B.S. degree from the University of Bridgeport.

Before coming to TC, Robinson held a joint appointment as Special Counsel to the Law School Dean and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs with Rutgers School of Law-Newark and Rutgers-Newark College of Arts and Sciences.

Robinson has served on several professional association boards and committees, including the Rent Stabilization and Guidelines Board under New York City Mayor David Dinkins. She currently serves as a Trustee for the Link Community School in Newark, New Jersey, and chairs its Education Committee.
