Jeremy R. Martin, M.P.Aff., Senior Policy Analyst, Higher Education Services
Dana Center Role
Jeremy has spent his career working in education systems to support students’ access and success in achieving their academic and career goals. At the Center, he conducts research, provides policy analysis, and develops resources for institutional leaders and state decision makers to improve student success in postsecondary mathematics. Jeremy supports scaling the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (formerly the New Mathways Project), an initiative to modernize entry-level college mathematics programs through working with states, universities, and colleges, by fostering a coordinated institutional and state policy environment that ensures the transfer and applicability of mathematics requirements for programs of study.
Before Joining the Dana Center
Jeremy taught speech and debate in grades 9–12 at public high schools in the Austin, Texas area. As a high school debate coach and program director, he led one of the nation’s largest debate teams to broad and deep competitive success at local, state, and national tournaments. During this time, Jeremy also provided leadership to professional debate teaching organizations and supported students and teachers through work at summer institutes.
As project manager and consultant for Pearson, Jeremy developed communications materials and provided research support for the company’s Research & Innovation Network.
