Biography

Hello Everyone,

I am Frank Billingsley, and I am from Ohio in a small rural area with much fresh air and forests. I like to think that I am semi-retired, but I am still involved in far too many actives to state that clearly.  My passion is traveling, community, conservation, veganism/vegetarianism, and my adorable pets! I have traveled to 4O of our beautiful states and over 27 countries and regions. 

My career started not in education but the human condition — my bachelor’s degree is in Psychology from Ohio Dominican University.  After graduation, I became a social worker for the child welfare system and worked with abused and neglected children. I did this for nearly ten years, and I worked in a couple of mental health centers along the way.  After completing a master’s in Human Ecology and the second one in Management from Boston University, I went straight into my Ph.D. work in Public Policy: Leadership and Administration from Walden University. Here is where I stubble into education!  After, I spent most of my career with Boston University, I worked as a head of school for an international school for around 5-years, and slowly have transitioned into teaching Online. I have been teaching online for nearly six years and teach research methods, marketing,  higher education law, and higher education and human systems. I join EBU in December 2019.

I have been actively presenting at conferences and conducting independent research. My current research is evaluating gender issues in higher education in Belgium.
