Graduate School of Education
Dr. Eddie Comeaux joined the faculty in 2012 as an Assistant Professor of Higher Education in the Graduate School of Education. His primary research interests include college student engagement, intercollegiate athletics, as well as diversity competence and leadership in student affairs. He has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles in the major journals for higher education and other related fields including Educational Researcher, Journal of Intercollegiate Sport, Journal of College Student Development, Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, and Sociology of Sport Journal. Comeaux also has a forthcoming textbook, Introduction to Athletics in American Higher Education (Johns Hopkins University Press).
Comeaux is currently working with participating athletic departments to implement the CTS and other “best practices” not only to foster evidence-based approaches among higher education practitioners in order to better understand the educational landscape of student-athletes but also to enhance the quality of student-athletes’ school-to-career transitions.
