Bradley Cox , PhD in Higher Education; Assistant Professor of Higher Education
Dr. Bradley E. Cox is an Assistant Professor of Higher Education in The Florida State University’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. Broadly invested in research that aims to understand student success and improve student outcomes, Cox undertakes projects that illuminate or extend “actionable intersections" that affect college students’ development, persistence, and graduation. Of primary interest are projects exploring how institutional policies shape student experiences and outcomes during the first year of college. Related topics of interest include: 1) the interplay between students’ college experiences and their home lives; 2) interactions between faculty members and students outside of the classroom; and 3) equity of outcomes for traditionally underserved students.
Dr. Cox has been awarded over $200,000 for the research project Linking Institutional Policies to Student Success (LIPSS). The LIPSS project seeks to identify specific institution-wide policies that can be leveraged to increase college student engagement – a key predictor of student grades and persistence that is especially beneficial to underrepresented and academically under-prepared students. He was also the recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Research Award from the Council on Research in Education in the College of Education at FSU in 2011.
In 2012, Dr. Cox received a Transformation Through Teaching award from Florida State University’s Spiritual Life Project. Dr. Cox teaches courses such as Theories of Student Development and The American College Student. Previously, he served as The Coordinator of Research and Public Information at the University of South Carolina’s National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition.
Dr. Cox received his Ph.D. in Higher Education from the Pennsylvania State University in 2010.
