Lowe, a veteran journalist and editor, has been assistant dean for student experiences at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications since 2019. She has been director of the university’s  Innovation News Center, one of the largest student-powered newsrooms in the country, since 2017.

“I’m super excited to be joining FAMU, a leading institution of higher learning in the state and a beacon among historically Black universities around the country. It’s an honor to have the opportunity to build upon its legacy of scholarship, professional preparation, and cultural pride,” Lowe said. “Being SJGC dean is a chance of a lifetime to help expand its record of achievement and to play a proud part in this HBCU moment.”
