Charlotte joined the University of Oregon in February 2018 to help advance the mission of the Division of Equity and Inclusion. Prior to joining UO Charlotte worked in higher education for more than 15 years serving in roles including Director of International Degree and Education Abroad, Director of International Research and Development, and Director of Women in International Development. In these and other roles she provided policy analysis and strategic support, working to mobilize a cross-cutting agenda to internationalize campus.

Her current role includes a suite of activity aimed at institutionalizing diversity, equity and inclusion into many corners of the university. Vehicles include designing rubrics for candidate searches, creating metrics to measure progress and working with the DEI team to support implementation of diversity action plans campus-wide. Charlotte is committed to strategic work and is excited to help support the interface between faculty and the evolving issues of equity, inclusion and diversity.

Raised in West Virginia, Charlotte holds a Doctorate degree from Antioch University in Leadership and Organizational Change and a Master’s degree in International Water Resource Management from the Institute for Environmental Studies at University of Wisconsin-Madison.  In her time away from UO, she spends time with her husband and two middle school children and their yellow lab, Goldie. She has a consulting practice that focuses on evaluating womens’ and girls’ initiatives globally and she has an enduring interest in womens’ leadership, educational diplomacy, diversifying access to higher education and in actively building a climate where people feel welcome and want to stay.
