Dr. Monita H. Mungo was a first-generation college student at Pepperdine University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. It was during her academic journey there where her love for humanity and social justice developed. That love has demonstrated itself in various forms throughout her career, including center management, academic program creation for underserved students, course development, department and community service, social activism, and research. Her primary goal is to educate students so that they are capable and willing to improve the human condition, stimulate the local economy, and create opportunities for future generations. Dr. Mungo is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Toledo where she works diligently to expose social inequities and demonstrate how this treatment serves as a barrier to educational achievement and career development. She also serves as an affiliated faculty member in the Africana Studies program and the Department of Women and Gender studies.
