Laurey Stryker


Dr. Laurey Stryker is an education consultant and works on projects with private foundations and nonprofit organizations. She manages The Patterson Foundation’s (TPF) Fellows initiative. TPF believes that creating a network of next-generation philanthropic leaders who have the willingness, capacity, and foresight to incorporate innovative strategies for long-term change is both an opportunity and a responsibility with considerable impact. TPF is in the process of building connective tissue with partners aligned with this goal.   

Dr. Stryker was TPF’s initiative consultant, along with Dr. Wendy Katz, for EdExploreSRQ. This sustainable platform has greatly enhanced access to experiential learning in Sarasota’s schools.

She most recently conducted the developmental work to establish the West Coast of Florida’s Cross College Alliance, which is made up of New College of Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, The Ringling/Florida State University, State College of Florida, and the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. The Alliance is dedicated to "Rethinking Education. Together" for the benefit of students and the community.

Prior to her consulting practice, Dr. Stryker held leadership positions in higher education at the University of South Florida and completed her career there as President of the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus.

She was also Florida’s Deputy Commissioner of Education for eight years, where she worked extensively on higher education policy and programs, and is also the former Deputy Secretary of Florida’s Department of Labor.

Dr. Stryker earned her bachelor and master of arts degrees in political science and her Ed.D in higher education management from Florida State University.
