Meet The Team

Heather Davis

I am Heather Davis, Director of the Dual Credit and Transition team at EKU. I am passionate about lifting people to the heights they have established for themselves. I was a first-generation student from South Central Kentucky, and I needed the help of several people at the college I attended to make the best decisions for me. In the Transfer Center, we want to be those people that help you get the information you need to make the best decisions for you. I’m ready to talk with you any time about how we can help you achieve your goals.

I am Lisa Cox, Director of Articulation and Transfer Systems (OATS) at EKU. Our office helps make sure your transfer credits get recorded and accurately applied to your EKU degree requirements. We also guide KCTCS students who are admitted to our Colonel Connection program. I have a special place in my heart for adult learners who want to explore how to make the most out of previous credits towards degree completion. I had such a great experience when I returned to finish my degree at EKU that I made this my career and EKU my home! I truly love what I do and look forward to helping support you during this important transition.
