Deidra Dennie | AACC

dennie-deidra-aaccAnne Arundel Community College named Deidra Dennie, DPA as its new chief diversity officer to further the college’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusive excellence.

Dennie officially joined the college Sept. 25 to take a significant leadership role in meeting the needs of the college’s increasingly diverse student body, while also helping to build a more welcoming and inclusive climate on campus.

AACC was among the first community colleges in the nation – and the first in Maryland – to have a chief diversity officer, with the hiring of its first in 2014. Since then, the college’s commitment to diversity has earned several national awards.

Dennie comes to AACC from Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia where she was the director of equity, diversity and inclusion.
