She is currently a Research Professor in CASE (Center for Advanced Study in Education) of the Graduate Center of The City University of New York[1] She is also a member of the Graduate Center’s Behavior Analysis Training Area in the Psychology Ph.D. Program.[2] From 2008 to 2014, she was the Executive Vice Chancellor and University Provost of CUNY, the CUNY system’s Chief Academic Officer.[3][4] She also served as provost and a professor at NYIT.[5]

Education[edit]

Alexandra W. Logue attended Harvard University, receiving her A.B. in Psychology Magna Cum Laude in 1974, and her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology in 1978.[1] As a senior in college and in graduate school she interacted extensively with B. F. Skinner, as well as with other members of the Harvard University behavior analysis faculty.[6] Her dissertation was entitled "Taste Aversion and the Generality of the Laws of Learning", a version of which was subsequently published in Psychological Bulletin.[7]

Academic Life[edit]

In 1978, Logue became a faculty member in the Psychology Department of SUNY Stony Brook, rising from the rank of Assistant Professor to Professor.[1] During this period she taught experimental psychology and statistics, and conducted extensive research and published on mathematical models of choice behavior (self-control and impulsiveness),[8] food preferences and aversions,[9] and the history of behaviorism.[10] In 1986 she published the first edition of her book The Psychology of Eating and Drinking.[11] The publication of this book and its subsequent editions, as well as her being a supertaster, have been widely covered in The New York Times and other media.[12][13][14][15] While a faculty member, she published another book, entitled Self-Control: Waiting Until Tomorrow for What You Want Today, in 1995,[16] as well as over a hundred articles and chapters.[1] She was named a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.[1] Her research was funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the McDonnell Foundation.[17]

Scholarship[edit]

Logue has brought her expertise in experimental psychology to bear on issues concerning higher education.[18][19] This work has ranged from examination of self-control and impulsiveness in higher education administrators[20] to developing mechanisms for assessing administrative performance,[21] to conducting large randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of academic programs designed to increase college student success.[22][23] She has advocated for the application of social science techniques to higher education administration[24] and has published a series of articles on such matters for Inside Higher Ed.[21] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29]
