CLARK-TAYLOR JOINS BGSU AS NEW DIRECTOR OF THE WOMEN’S CENTER
Dr. Angela Clark-Taylor has arrived as the new director of the Women’s Center. An experienced higher education administrator, organizer and community leader, she is deeply committed to gender equity, empowering women and creating a community free from violence and oppression, said Dr. Thomas Gibson, vice president for student affairs and vice provost.
Clark-Taylor comes to BGSU from the University of Redlands in California, where she served as a visiting assistant professor in the counseling and higher education programs since 2015. During her time at Redlands, she helped to expand both its teaching and research in women’s, gender and sexuality studies. Last May she was named the inaugural Rochford Leadership Initiative Faculty Fellow to encourage and support first-generation, low-income students of color to attend and succeed in college.
She earned a Ph.D. in higher education from the University of Rochester in 2016, and a graduate certificate in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies in 2014. She received a Master of Science in higher education from Rochester in 2012, and a Master of Arts in women’s studies in 2008 from The College at Brockport. She received her bachelor’s degree in American studies and media communications in 2005 from SUNY Old Westbury.
