Pamela D. White has been named the director of compliance and conflict resolution at Virginia Tech. 

She succeeds Maggie Sloane who retired from the position after six years of service to the university.

“Pamela’s wealth of experience, combined with her desire and passion to positively resolve, impact, and increase awareness in the areas of discriminatory harassment prevention and conflict resolution made her the ideal candidate for this position,” said Hal Irvin, associate vice president of human resources.

White’s responsibilities in the Department of Human Resources include providing education and consultation on Virginia Tech’s anti-discrimination and harassment prevention policy and investigating complaints of possible policy violations; offering mediation, facilitation, and other conflict resolution services where those approaches are the most appropriate; and providing discriminatory harassment prevention training and conflict resolution/management training.

“I am absolutely thrilled to have joined the Virginia Tech community,” said White. “I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and making a positive contribution to the university’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

Prior to joining Virginia Tech, White worked as the coordinator for Equal Opportunity Programs at Florida Atlantic University. She also has experience as a trial court law clerk and staff attorney for the State of Florida, Fifteenth Judicial Circuit, and a legal researcher.  Additionally, White held several positions at the National Council on Compensation Insurance between 1996 and 2003.

White received a bachelor’s degree in government from Florida State University and a juris doctorate degree from Nova Southeastern University.

Anyone with questions or concerns regarding harassment or discrimination should email White or call 540-231-8771.
