The Ohio State University College of Engineering has named Monica F. Cox as the first chair of its recently created Department of Engineering Education.

Approved by Ohio State’s Board of Trustees on November 6, the new department was established to strengthen the college in its support of undergraduate education and graduate-level research in engineering education as a growing discipline.

Professor Cox comes to Ohio State from Purdue University, where she was the director of the International Institute for Engineering Education Assessment and an associate professor in the School of Engineering Education. In 2011, she became the first African-American female to earn tenure in the College of Engineering at Purdue.
