Eda Davis-Lowe Named One of 35 Outstanding Women in Higher Education

Congratulations Eda Davis-Lowe, assistant vice president, partnerships for educational equity, who was named one of 35 outstanding women in higher education by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. In honor of Women’s History Month, the list recognizes women who have made a difference in academics by tackling some of higher education’s toughest challenges, exhibiting extraordinary leadership skills and making a positive difference in their respective communities.

Eda was recognized for her work at Valencia College supporting STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and diversifying individuals supporting STEM careers, both regionally and nationally. She championed the creation and evolution of the College’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program, a partnership comprised currently of College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Polk State College and Valencia to increase the number of underrepresented minority students who complete associate degrees at the alliance institutions and enroll in bachelor’s degree programs with STEM majors.

Prior to joining Valencia, Eda led the Science and Math Investigative Learning Experiences Program at Oregon State University, which was designed to raise aspirations among underserved students and help them reach their full potential.

Congratulate Eda in the comments below.
