Portfolio for Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders
Caroline Goon, MS, MBA, is an experienced higher education growth strategist who recently transitioned to the Office of Research on Women's Health at NIH where she was a Career Development Program Lead that helped to research, develop, and support opportunities to recruit, retain, and advance women in biomedical research careers.
Prior to NIH, Caroline was the Assistant Dean of Strategic Initiatives and Marketing within Georgetown University Medical Center - Biomedical Graduate Education. In that role, she helped to guide the strategic direction and special initiatives, recruitment, fundraising, and communication efforts of 33 different degree-granting programs in the areas of interdisciplinary basic and health science, data science, policy, and industry science.
Throughout her career, Caroline has recognized the paramount importance of diversity and inclusion to go beyond the typical "check the box" initiative. She established a portfolio of merit-scholarships to support students who are uniquely able to contribute to the diversity of the university community, and launched the first peer-mentoring program for underrepresented pre-health students, conducted in conjunction with Georgetown University's School of Medicine.
Caroline graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a B.S. in Biology, and a minor in Community Health. She then completed her M.S. in Biohazardous Threat Agents & Emerging Infectious Diseases and her Master of Business Administration at Georgetown University.
