Belmont University recently named Jill Robinson as the new Assistant Dean of External Relations and Strategic Partnerships for The Jack C. Massey College of Business, effective July 1. In this new role, Robinson will expand on her previous role as the director of external relations and executive learning networks for MCB as the primary liaison for creating, developing and maintaining successful external partnerships.
Robinson will continue to oversee the strategic efforts to advance the communication and coordination of initiatives and programs while also enhancing collaboration between faculty, students, staff and members of the community at large between The Jack C. Massey College of Business and educational, business, government and community organizations, for the purpose of cultivating long-term relationships that support MCB’s strategic priorities.
Robinson said she is thankful to continue her work in community outreach in this new role. “My 27-year history of creating partnerships in Middle Tennessee has afforded me a wonderful career connecting with like-minded business executives, associations, non-profit and corporate entities to create impact in the broader Nashville community and beyond,” she said. “Being able to bring together the skills, talent, and opportunities within the Massey College family and align them with our partners’ priorities is a privilege and great joy. I’m excited to see what we can create in long-lasting relationships that impact students, professors and Middle Tennessee for years to come.”
Beginning her Belmont career in 2005, Robinson served as the senior event planner for Belmont’s Office of the President and University Advancement teams, moving to the role of director of executive learning and marketing for the Center for Executive Education in 2007. Robinson then served as the director of external relations and executive learning networks for the Massey College for eight years. She has also taught as an adjunct professor in the School of Business Administration and Belmont’s Public Relations Department since 2010, focusing on event planning and event management. Robinson holds a Master of Business Administration and Master of Arts in Organizational Management from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee.
