Brandy Jones

Assistant Director for Communications

Brandy Jones serves as the Assistant Director of Communications for CMSI. She is a native of Providence, Rhode Island and a recent graduate of the University of Rhode Island (URI), where she obtained her B.A. in Sociology and Communications. While at URI, she was a founding member of the DIVE RI Conference, a student-led conference on race and ethnicity on college campuses. The conference has since expanded to shape discussions on policies and practices at PWIs throughout New England. 

Upon graduating, she began working for the Cheyney Foundation, the 501(c)(3) arm of Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, the nation's first HBCU. As a first generation college student, Brandy has an interest in the ways in which institutions are supporting first generation students as well as how PWIs can learn from HBCUs to better support under-resourced students. She also has an interest in exploring the ways study abroad organizations are supporting racial and ethnic minorities while abroad.

Brandy is currently pursuing a M.S.Ed in Higher Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
