President

Dr. Tuajuanda Jordan

BIO

Dr. Tuajuanda C. Jordan is the seventh president of St. Mary's College of Maryland. Jordan was appointed by unanimous vote of the college's Board of Trustees in March 2014 and took office on July 1, 2014.

Prior to St. Mary's College, Jordan served as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and professor of chemistry at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Ore., beginning 2011. During her tenure at Lewis & Clark, Jordan helped recruit an exceptional and diverse faculty, launched a center for entrepreneurship, developed a campus-wide system to increase student persistence and graduation rates, and raised funds to enhance faculty development.

From 2005 to 2011, Jordan was the director of the Science Education Alliance (SEA) of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chevy Chase, Md. As director, Jordan led a collaborative effort designed to have scientists and educators work together to enhance science literacy while preparing the next generation of scientists. She also headlined the National Genomics Research Initiative in 2008, a program that exposes first-year college students to hands-on genomics research.

Jordan entered academic administration in 2002, serving as associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Xavier University of Louisiana, where she soon advanced to associate vice president for academic affairs. Because of Jordan's coordinated efforts with other administrators in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Xavier University was the first institution to re-open its doors for classes.

STATEMENT FROM THE President

"Access and intellectual exploration are at the core of our public liberal arts college, and therefore the importance of – and need for – scholarship is great.

Whether it is designated for the general scholarship fund, or an endowed or current-use named scholarship, these gifts directly support our students. As more and more of our students find themselves challenged by the limits of federal assistance and personal resources, students who succeed academically, meritoriously, are struggling to make ends meet.

We could not offer such a distinctive education in the liberal arts without your support and it is through your generosity that we are able to uphold the promise as the state's honors college."
