Dana Center Role

Jeremy has spent his career working in education systems to support students in achieving their academic and career goals. At the Dana Center, he conducts research, provides policy analysis, and develops resources for institutional leaders and state decision makers to improve student success in postsecondary mathematics. For the Higher Education Services team, Jeremy collaborates with key stakeholders from states, institutions, and professional organizations to understand and influence policies to improve equitable access and success in mathematics education. In addition, he supports the Center’s executive director in his national efforts to modernize entry-level college mathematics programs by conducting research to inform strategic planning, program design, and resource development. 

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.
