The University of Mary Washington’s Dahlgren campus has a new director.
Longtime defense-industry professional Scott Jones has joined the UMW Dahlgren Campus Center for Education and Research as campus director, according to a university newsletter.
He began at UMW last week after a 30-year career in defense, 28 of which were with BAE Systems’ Dahlgren site.
He managed a major program for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division and BAE Systems most recently.
“He brings well-established relationships with the region’s military and civilian communities, a respected history of successful leadership and accomplishment, and the energy that will enhance the Dahlgren Campus’ multifaceted contributions to the Navy, King George County and the university,” said the newsletter.
Scott is a 1984 UMW graduate.
