In the newly created position, Ramey will lead and build on the College's efforts to create an educational environment that is socially aware and culturally inclusive, that celebrates diversity, that strives for equity and that is free from discrimination.

Prior to that, she was assistant dean of students at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, as well as coordinator of judicial affairs. She also has held positions at Aiken Technical College, Case Western Reserve University and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
At Roanoke, Ramey will lead collegewide efforts to create a community where all students, faculty and staff are respected and valued, and have a sense of belonging. Building on the momentum and accomplishments of recent years, Ramey will work to accelerate and refine the College's efforts for and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
"We are excited for Teresa to bring her expertise in building strong communities to our community at Roanoke College," Maxey said. "Throughout the candidate selection process, Teresa notably connected with faculty, staff and students, and we know she will collaborate and connect in powerful ways at Roanoke College."

Ramey holds a Bachelor of Arts in speech communications from Western Kentucky University and a Master of Science in instructional development from Jacksonville State University. She is close to completing her dissertation toward the Doctor of Education in higher education administration from Northeastern University.
"I know how special the Roanoke College community is, and I can't wait to work with the students, faculty, staff and others along the way to further the College's success and involve everyone in meaningful community inclusion work," Ramey said.
