Maria L, a History graduate student, thinks “Dr. Tonjanita Johnson, the Deputy to President Stanley, is the most inspirational and helpful administrator I have met in all my years at Stony Brook. She truly is someone I wish to be more like and hope that more students get to develop a relationship with her.”
Dr. Johnson was featured as the keynote speaker for the Multicultural Women’s Alliance Welcome Event: United Through Diversity – hearing from such an intelligent and accomplished administrator was clearly inspirational to students like Maria. Though she is an extremely busy woman in a demanding position, she still makes time to meet with students a priority! Connections between administrators and students can be some of the most valuable, beneficial, AWESOME relationships for both parties.
