Virginia Wray Totaro grew up in Roanoke, VA, attended Elon University (Major: Sociology, Minor: Psychology), and earned a Master’s degree in Sociology from VCU. From 1994-2001, she worked for several corporations as an account executive while teaching one Sociology class per semester at Reynolds Community College. After four years in Northern Va, Ms. Totaro returned to VCU in 2005 to teach for the Sociology department. Human Sexuality, Marriage and Family, and Sociology of Racism are just a few of the courses she taught. In the Fall of 2007, she accepted a full-time position with Focused Inquiry. Long interested in student success and the way students see themselves as learners, Ms. Totaro’s scholarship includes conference presentations on student engagement, quantitative literacy, and the use of undergraduate teaching assistants. In 2016, she took over the departmental role of assessment coordinator, where she is responsible for annual programmatic assessment for University College.
