Dr. Barbara Altmann

President, Franklin & Marshall College

“Dr. Royel Johnson has done great work at Franklin & Marshall College, including workshops on inclusion in pedagogy and syllabi, and on "equity mindedness" as an approach to College operations. Johnson brings research-based expertise along with considerable experience, and fluidly adapts his delivery and materials to match the needs and objectives of different campus constituencies. After the success of his sessions with faculty, professional staff, and senior administrators, we invited him to present to our Board of Trustees."
