Biography

Dr. ‘Dimeji Togunde serves as the Associate Provost for Global Education and professor of International Studies at Spelman College.

In his capacity as the College’s Chief International Officer, Dr. Togunde provides guidance and direction for all of the College’s global initiatives. As the focal point of contact for information about Spelman’s global activities, he is responsible for building/strengthening strategic international partnership engagements aimed at enhancing student exchanges, faculty and students’ research, and students’ global learning experiences.

Dr. Togunde also leads the assessment of the College’s internationalization initiatives and collaborates with academic departments to encourage greater awareness of and involvement with the realities of globalization.

Prior to joining Spelman College in August 2011, Professor Togunde spent the last 15 years at Albion College in Michigan, where he held the John S. Ludington Endowed Chair in the Social Sciences as Professor of Sociology, and served as Chair of the Department of Anthropology/Sociology, and Director of Ethnic Studies Program.
