Gaslevic served as the Hopkins representative on, and held a leadership role within, the National Academies of Science Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education, and served on the Association of American Universities Advisory Board on Sexual Harassment in Academia.
Directly before joining UBalt Law, Gaslevic was senior counsel at the large national law firm of Husch Blackwell, where she advised a wide range of higher education clients on matters such as student and faculty affairs, compliance, policy development, training and case management.
In her role as associate dean for administration at UBalt Law, Gaslevic is responsible for the administration of the law school, with approximately 100 faculty and staff members, a student body of more than 700 students, and a budget of more than $24 million.
