Dr. Alexandra W. Logue received her A.B. in Psychology and her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology, both from Harvard University. Her general research area is learning and motivation, with special research interests in choice behavior, self-control, and food aversions and preferences.

Dr. Logue is an internationally known behavioral scientist. She has published more than 120 articles and chapters, primarily on quantitative models of choice behavior, and has served on the editorial boards of many prestigious journals. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Mental Health. The recipient of the American Psychological Association's Hake Award for excellence in bridging basic and applied research, Dr. Logue is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, The Association for Psychological Science, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Following graduate school, Dr. Logue joined the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where she rose to become Associate Dean of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Chair of the Department of Psychology.

In 1995, she began her six-year tenure as Dean of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College of the City University of New York. During her tenure at Baruch, five Weissman faculty became CUNY Distinguished Professors, and three others received CUNY's New Faculty Research Award. At Baruch she oversaw the receipt of several landmark gifts, significantly increased external funding for faculty research, initiated several new interdisciplinary master's degrees, and instituted an annual conference on teaching and technology that grew to serve the entire CUNY system.

In 2001, Dr. Logue became New York Institute of Technology's Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, directing NYIT's New York, global, and online academic programs in teaching, research, and service. She supervised the libraries, academic computing, academic planning, initiatives in teaching and learning with technology, and research centers. She was also the chief liaison with the faculty and their labor representatives (AAUP), serving as the lead negotiator for a new five-year collective bargaining agreement. At NYIT, Dr. Logue oversaw the initiation of several new undergraduate and graduate programs and restructured several units, resulting in significant savings as well as program improvements.

In 2008, she assumed her current duties as the chief academic officer of CUNY, with responsibilities for all of CUNY’s academic programs, academic technology, enrollment management, faculty, libraries, institutional research, and students.
