Dr. Cheryl Johnson, ODEI Executive Director
Dr. Cheryl Johnson is the new Executive Director of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) at HSU. Dr. Johnson will also serve as the HSU Title IX Coordinator. She earned her doctorate of psychology degree at Wright Institue in Berkeley, CA. Dr. Johnson was one of the founding members of the Wright Institute Students of Color (WISOC). WISOC was created to support students of color as they navigated the field of clinical psychology, a discipline not heavily populated by people of color. She later served as an alumnus on the admissions committee for three years, in order to recruit more people of color in the field of psychology. Over her career, Dr. Johnson has worked with diverse populations such as the chronically mentally ill, incarcerated women re-entering into mainstream society and re-unifying with their children, homeless women and their children, school aged youth, and children and families involved with courts and social service systems. The principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion apply to all of work that Dr. Johnson has done and will continue to do in the future.
