It is my distinct pleasure to announce that effective September 3, 2017, Dr. Ginger Charles will be joining the administration of Saybrook University as our new Director of Business Development and Operations. This unique role marries several areas for which GInger will be responsible including finance, operations (Human Resources & payroll will report up to Ginger as well), business development, project management, and cultivating community relations. Furthermore, Ginger will be our designated institutional Chief Financial Officer, working closely with faculty, staff, administration, and our System colleagues, including our System CFO, Mr. Mehul Patel.
Dr. Charles brings to the role 27+ years of experience as a police officer and sergeant as well as several years as an academician, focusing on psychology (specifically spirituality and policing). During her time on the police force, she successfully managed departments, staff, and budgets. As an alumnus of the university, Ginger has gained significant traction with her work on policing and spirituality, serving as a critical voice on policing-community issues.
On a personal note, Dr. Charles brings an energy to our team that will further enhance the work we're doing to support Saybrook's long-term health and vitality. Her integrity, sincerity, and dedication to a job well done make her an outstanding fit for our institution.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Charles!
