"As MCC faculty, it is extremely rewarding to me to teach and exchange knowledge with staff, students and business organizations."

Liliana Cox is passionate about teaching and learning—she has an impressive résumé to prove it. Cox´s educational background is extensive. She earned a Bachelor´s in Civil Engineering/Environmental Protection followed by a Ph.D. in Agronomy/Plant Nutrition in 1999. She completed the Master of Business Administration Program through Creighton University in 2004 and earned a Master's of Science in Information Technology from Creighton University in 2005. Armed with a great education and an abundance of knowledge, Cox decided it was time to start encouraging others and teaching what she learned.

Cox met with now Vice President of Academic Affairs David Ho and Dean of Business Daryl Hansen at a career fair at MCC´s Sarpy Center in Fall 2007. Cox began working as adjunct faculty in the Business Management Program shortly there after. In 2008, Cox taught diverse business curriculum. Beginning this fall, she will work in the Business Management/Entrepreneurship Program teaching and developing curriculum to increase the program´s cooperation with Omaha businesses, organizations, colleges and universities.

Cox´s contributions to MCC do not end with teaching. She is a co-advisor for Kappa Beta Delta helping students develop leadership skills to become successful leaders. Cox is on the MCC committee that organizes the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Region 5 Conference along with other MCC staff and faculty. She will also be on the panel of the Sept. 25 discussion Business Education Without Borders facilitated by Ho.

There is never a dull moment for Cox. She stays busy at home with two daughters, Diana and Sabina. As a family, they enjoy outdoor activities, traveling and networking with people with different cultural and professional backgrounds. Cox volunteers with many local organizations, including Sheltering Tree, Inc., St. Vincent Orthodox Church, Project Homeless of Omaha and District 66 Council. Cox hopes to accelerate the development of the nonprofit organization Sheltering Tree, Inc. so the Omaha metropolitan area is a model of best practices in integrating and helping young adults with mild forms of mental disability into society.
