Over the past 4 years I have had the opportunity to work closely on a number of projects with Dr. Jalin Johnson. Dr. Johnson has consistently shown an unparalleled level of passion for her students’ learning experience and ensures that she is able to apply innovative learning approaches for her students. Furthermore, in conference presentations, Dr. Johnson represents Brandman University in a dignified and professional manner. I consider myself fortunate to work with Jalin and I look forward to working with her more in the future! Best, Sara Zaker, Ed.D.

Dr. Jalin B. Johnson and I have worked together in multiple capacities within Brandman University since 2011 when we were both employed at the Moreno Valley campus. When we first met, Jalin was the Manager of Community & Corporate Relations and I was a new hire as the campus Credential Specialist/One Stop Specialist. During our first year she has been a mentor to myself, my colleagues, and the students at Brandman University. Since then, she and I have both transitioned into different roles, and we have continued to work collaboratively to support Brandman Universitys students. Throughout the time I have known Jalin, I have witnessed her transform and take on greater responsibilities. However, there are aspects of Jalin that remain consistent and appear to be built into her core values and that is her commitment to empowering students to envision themselves in an elevated state and moreover developing their practical tool-kit to prepare them to take the next step towards that vision. Today, I am now in a Director position with Brandman University and I attribute much of my professional and personal growth to her guidance and mentorship.

Dr. Johnson is the definition of professionalism at every turn, she sets the bar for herself high and asks her students and colleagues to join her in her relentless pursuit for excellence. We have collaborated on a variety of projects and her plethora of talents never cease to amaze me, from synthesizing complex content in ways that engage students and provide avenues for their learning, to looking at the whole Brandman community and working to create relationships that enlighten and inform how we meet the needs of our students, she embodies our mission and vision. I feel honored to know her and work alongside her, and my hope is to do so for many years to come.

Dr. Johnson and I have collaborated on numerous media projects for her course developments over the years. These collaborations are some of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences I’ve had during my time at Brandman.
Collaborating with Dr. Johnson is a true delight because where some media projects end up being a delegation of tasks, the media we develop together is accomplished through the free exchange of ideas. Dr. Johnson’s desire to teach her students through innovative, dynamic and engaging instructional design is infectious.
She frequently goes above and beyond in her developments and selflessly lends her amazing vocal talent to other projects in her spare time. Her voice can be heard on numerous videos and interactive content that spans all of the schools at Brandman.
This is because her voice, much like her personality and work ethic, is kind, insightful and rich in diverse ideals.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jalin Johnson throughout the time that I’ve been at Brandman University. Jalin has always demonstrated knowledge of our students’ and organizational partners’ needs in working with them to provide education and training services aligned with the Brandman mission and vision while also aligning with the students’ and partners’ mission and vision.
On an externally focused basis, Jalin listens closely to our organization clients’ discussions of their workforce needs and skill gaps. She has prepared and delivered education and training to those organizations resulting in a continuing request for her services.
Internally, Jalin has mentored instructors and staff working with School of Extended Education in order to assist our Brandman workforce in engaging our student and organization client base and providing high quality education and training.
Please accept this as my recommendation for the promotion of Jalin Johnson.
Dr. Jalin Johnson has made significant contributions to Brandman University. From her role as Manager for Community and Corporate Relations to her current role as Assistant Professor, she is someone who fully dedicates herself to her position.
She was instrumental in our initial recruitment efforts for the Doctor in Organizational Leadership and was also responsible for collaborating with the administrative team in developing the workflow for the accelerated BBA to MBA program.
Both were very successful initiatives!
Every time I have worked with Dr. Jalin Johnson, I have found her to conduct herself with the utmost level of professionalism, commitment, and service to our prospects, students, and community.
Besides being such an asset to the university and our community, she is wonderful to work with and embodies the Brandman values of innovation, service, respect, integrity and teamwork.
I highly recommend Dr. Johnson for promotion to Associate Professor!
