CoxBecoming a fellow member of ASEE is awarded after a thorough evaluation by the ASEE Fellow Member Committee and is initiated by nomination and supported with references. According to the ASEE website, the designation of fellow is one of great professional distinction. It is conferred by the board of directors upon a society member with outstanding and extraordinary qualifications, and experience in engineering or engineering technology education or allied field, and ASEE contributions.

Prior to her appointment at Ohio State, Cox she was an associate professor in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University, where she also became the inaugural director of the College of Engineering's Leadership Minor and director of the International Institute of Engineering Education Assessment (i2e2a). In 2013, she became founder and owner of STEMinent, LLC, a company focused on STEM education assessment and professional development for stakeholders in K-12 education, higher education and corporate America.

Her research is focused on the use of mixed methodologies to explore significant research questions in undergraduate, graduate and professional engineering education, to integrate concepts from higher education and learning science into engineering education, and to develop and disseminate reliable and valid assessment tools for use across the engineering education continuum. She has most recently engaged in research exploring the persistence of women of color faculty in engineering.

In June 2020, Cox will be honored at the society’s Annual Conference and Exposition in Montreal, Quebec, Canada where she will be presented with her with the award.
