The University of Minnesota has been part of Sarah Johnson Sexton’s life since she was a child. She is a second-generation University employee (her father, Jerry Sexton, worked in a department known as “Videotape” at the time) as well as an alumna, having earned her Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Spanish at the University.
The Social Concerns Committee is concerned with the interrelationship between the University and the broader social community, as well as the nature and extent of the University's response to social concerns.
