It is with great pleasure and a true honor that I may offer a few words to support Dr. Jalin Johnson for promotion in rank to Associate Professor at Brandman University.
I have been an Academic Advisor at Brandman since 2004 and the Director of Advising and Retention Services since 2014. I have had the opportunity to work closely with Dr. Johnson for a number of years and have always found her to be thoughtful and collaborative while defining what it means to be student-centric.
I have truly appreciated the many opportunities she has initiated over the years to engage me, the rest of our academic advising staff, and adjunct faculty in her mission of helping every student find the support and success that they deserve.
Whether it was a chance for me to address the bi-annual adjunct professional development meeting she helps coordinate or her willingness to seek my help in connecting a student with their Academic Advisor, Dr. Johnson is a measure to which all University faculty should be compared.
Finally, and on more personal note, I consider Dr. Johnson an inspiring role model and mentor as I consider future steps in my career.
Donald B. Scott, Ed.D. Director, Advising and Retention Services
