My name is Caitlin Cox and I was born in Medford, Oregon, and grew up in Berea, Kentucky. I attended schools in Berea and Richmond, Kentucky, and graduated from Madison Southern High School. I am a graduate of Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. At the University of Alabama, I enrolled and earned a Master of Library Information Sciences. Before graduation, I partook in internships at Satilla Regional Library in Douglas, Georgia, W.S. Smith Library with South Georgia State College in Douglas, Georgia, and Heritage Werks, an archival firm, in Atlanta, Georgia. After graduation, I took time off due to a high-risk pregnancy.

In November 2015, four months after my daughter was born, I accepted a Circulation Desk position at Oxford Public Library. Within four months, I was the new Assistant Director of Oxford Public Library. Then, in October 2017 I accepted the position of Library Director for Savery Library at Talladega College. Since working at Talladega College I have filled roles of Part-Time Online Faculty Manager, Part-Time EDU 100-College Orientation Professor, and am currently serving as the Interim Director of the Dr. William R. Harvey Museum of Art and the UNCF Liberal Arts Innovation Center Grant Program Manager.

I am excited to be partaking in the UNCF LAIC grant because I believe active learning is the only way students will be able to truly learn content and not only regurgitate but retain. I believe that Dr. McKay is a leader and beyond knowledgeable in the field and am blessed to get to work with her and her team.

I have been married to Justin Cox for ten years (May) and have one daughter, Emma, who will turn six in June. I attend Trinity Baptist Church in Oxford, Alabama, and am a diehard Alabama fan, ROLL TIDE!

Mrs. Caitlin Cox is serving as Program Manager/IT Specialist.
