Mission & Vision

We cultivate expertise with educators, system leaders, families and advocates across the sciences of healthy brain development, language and literacy so that all children can think critically and act boldly to reshape the world. 


Our Vision:

Literacy and justice for all.

Through teaching the science of language and literacy, every child has the opportunity to have the literacy skills they need to lead a life of self-determination. To get there, we believe in an ecosystem approach, across the learning continuum from the third trimester of pregnancy to literacy.  We effect change through partnerships with philanthropic organizations, communities, systems and scientists. We distribute that change through courses, resources and online events by way of the Cox Campus.



What is Cox Campus?

Founded in 2014 following a generous grant from the James M. Cox Foundation, the Cox Campus online adult  learning platform aims to provide free and open access to equity-based, IACET-accredited Science of Reading coursework, content, and professional learning across the learning continuum – prenatal through literacy.

Through continued support from national and local philanthropic partners that are committed to access and equity, including the Rollins Family, the James M. Cox Foundation and the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation/Joseph B. Whitehead Foundation, Cox Campus provides literacy resources to more than 250,000 members across all 50 states and in more than 80 countries globally. In 2021, more than 99,000 courses and videos were completed, which is equivalent to approximately $15M in accredited professional development courses.

With the ultimate goal of eradicating illiteracy, Cox Campus provides equitable educational opportunity access to every child – regardless of race, zip code or ethnicity.
