Jack Cox ’26

International Relations and Spanish

Cox will work with Brendan Mark, an assistant professor of political science and director of URI’s Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies.

“I knew that during my summers in college, I wanted to do something productive and challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone. I have never done research like this before, and not going to lie it did seem a little overwhelming at first. However, doing research was the best decision I could’ve made for myself this summer. Not only does it give me a great opportunity to work with other students and Professor Skip Mark, but it also opens up new doors and ideas in terms of a potential future career for myself.” –Jack Cox
