Regina (Gina) Toman, Ph.D., spent the last seven years wearing many hats in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service. Her primary roles have been as assistant dean of CPACS and director of the Division of Continuing Studies. She has also served as faculty in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program;and represents UNO as the president of the Board of Directors for the Women’s Center for Advancement (WCA). Toman’s leadership experience in CPACS has prepared her for her newest role as faculty human resources officer and assistant to the senior vice chancellor. Read the press release.
When asked how her leadership in CPACS led to her new role, Toman responded, "It was my pleasure to serve as assistant dean of CPACS and director of the Division of Continuing Studies during the past seven years. The faculty, staff, and students in the college make it a very special place. I especially enjoyed working with the staff in DCS to support and promote the Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies (BMS). DCS and BMS-related collaborations with UNO faculty and staff provided a solid foundation for my new role in Academic Affairs."
Since joining the DCS and Dean’s Office teams, Toman’s work has reflected a deep commitment to helping students. Toman is described by colleagues as the consummate professional, always treating everyone she meets as a potential friend and colleague. Toman is consistent and clear in her expectations and guidance. One strength that will serve Toman well in her new role is her ability to holistically analyze an environment and situation--listening to all perspectives before making a thoughtful decision. She finds the positives in any situation and is known for finding joy even in rainy days. Toman’s leadership in DCS was the driving force behind the degree’s recent name change to the Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies (BMS).
Outside of her work at UNO, Toman is passionate about animals, fitness, and is a dedicated daughter, sister, and friend. We will miss Gina’s positive influence in CPACS but have no doubt that the work she will accomplish in Academic Affairs will be equally as impressive.
