Vice President for Campus Engagement, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Cleveland State University

Dr. Phillip “Flapp” Cockrell assumed the role of Vice President for Campus Engagement, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Cleveland State University in September 2021. Just prior to joining Cleveland State University, Cockrell served as vice president for student affairs and vice provost at the University of Toledo from 2016-2021. He holds a Bachelor of Science in family studies from Mississippi University for Women, a Master of Science in educational leadership/student affairs administration from Florida International University, and a Doctor of Philosophy in urban higher education from Jackson State University. A product of the Mary Holmes Junior College Upward Bound Program, Dr. Cockrell’s scholarly research interest centers on the experiences of first-generation and low-income college students of color within post-secondary institutions. He credits the Upward Bound Program for saving his life and introducing him to a world of possibilities to be a global citizen and leader. 

Dr. Cockrell’s presentation, “Less Lip Service…More Action Please and Thank You,” will explore his vision for diversity at CSU and the ways in which faculty, staff, and students can continue activism at every level of the institution.  Take this opportunity to meet Dr. Cockrell and see how we at CLASS can engage in this visionary process.
