About Christie L. Fox

The Director of the Honors Program is Christie Fox. Dr. Fox was appointed Director in August 2005, after serving as Honors Program Coordinator for 18 months. She is an IB graduate; participated in the Honors Program at Loyola University in New Orleans; earned a Master's degree in Women's Studies from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland; and completed her PhD in folklore at Indiana University. Her research field is Irish Studies, particularly Irish drama, and she is currently completing a book-length manuscript on Irish drama and performance in the 1990s. She teaches in Honors and in English, most recently Studies in Drama and Film and Period Studies in English (on the Irish independence period).
Dr. Fox loves leading the Honors Program. She is committed to the idea of creating "world citizens," a concept with great affinity with the "citizen scholar" ideal and the Honors Program's emphasis on undergraduate research. Dr. Fox says: "One of the most exciting aspects of the position is seeing students set goals and helping them achieve them. I'm proud to be part of a program and an institution so committed to student learning and exploration." She reports that the most fun part of her job is learning about the cool things students are doing around the university.
Dr. Fox is a big fan of study abroad, enjoys meeting Honors students face to face, and is available for consulting on any and all aspects of a student's education
