Jordan is St. Mary's College of Maryland's first African American president. She is a Maryland native and science-focused liberal arts champion. Jordan's inauguration ceremony will take place on Saturday, Oct. 18, on the college campus.

MARY'S CITY, MD -The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Baltimore Metropolitan Chapter, has presented Tuajuanda C. Jordan, president of St. Mary's College of Maryland, with its Torchbearer Award. Jordan was honored during the coalition's 25th annual Torchbearer Awards Breakfast held Sept. 27 at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Md.
Each year the coalition honors women who have distinguished themselves in the areas of health, education, economic development, cultural arts, or social and political action. This year's honorees, recommended by the coalition's membership, are women in education with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (S.T.E.M.).
"We want to recognize your efforts and the seriousness with which you pursued your vision," said Mary Demory, awards chair, in a letter announcing Jordan as an honoree.
"I was humbled to be named an honoree, especially in light of the very distinguished wo-men who were also honored," said Jordan.
Jordan took office as St. Mary's College's seventh president 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. 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's honors include being named a Purdue University Distinguished Alumni from the School of Agriculture in 2008, and, in 2009, being named a "revolutionary mind" by Seed magazine.

Tuajuanda Jordan, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and professor of chemistry at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, will take over the job July 1. She will be the public liberal arts college's first black president.

The college's Board of Trustees selected Jordan unanimously. Jordan, 53, is from Forestville in Prince George's County and has a lengthy background in science and academic leadership.
Jordan will take over from interim president Ian Newbould, who has held the post for the academic year.
increasing the college's enrollment is Jordan's priority. She called St. Mary's a "well-kept secret" and said it's a bargain compared to other liberal arts colleges on the East Coast.
"At most liberal arts colleges, aside from the upper echelon, you are dealing with enrollment issues," she said. "It's not something that's unique to St. Mary's."
Jordan wants to wait to map out a solution until she has a chance to meet faculty, students and administrators and hear their ideas.
"First, I have to figure out what happened, being an outsider," she said. "Then I have to figure out what we should be doing to grow that enrollment to what is a reasonable level."
"College communities appreciate leadership that is strong, and it's important to be accessible and to be in constant communication with people and to listen to people," she said. "One thing that's really important is treating everybody as a human being and with respect. Some leaders forget about that. It takes everybody to run a college."
Jordan previously was the director of the Science Education Alliance of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chevy Chase. She went to Lewis and Clark College, which has about 2,100 undergraduates, in 2002. She holds a chemistry degree from Fisk University and a doctorate in biochemistry from Purdue University, and was named a "revolutionary mind" by Seed Magazine in 2009, according to St. Mary's.
Gail Harmon, chair of the college's board of trustees and its presidential search committee, said the selection committee was impressed by Jordan's work at the Howard Hughes institute and liked her "considered" approach.
Harmon said the committee interviewed 11 people for the position and thought Jordan was thoughtful and measured, as well as "warm and approachable."
