Davis holds a master of arts degree in educational leadership and administration, and a bachelor of arts degree in communication and organizational management, both from Concordia University-St. Paul.
Davis assumes the position in July and will hold an open forum for the Minneapolis College community at the beginning of the academic year in August. This will be an in-person opportunity to hear her vision and engage with her in dialog.
