Featured Speaker


 

Jenée Myers Twitchell, PhD

Research scientist and the Director of Advancement at Unite:Ed


She also works as as Special Advisor to the Deans for Postsecondary Success & Advancement.

Jenee was the first in her family to attend college and grew up in rural eastern Washington (outside of Yakima). She attended the University of Washington and earned a bachelor’s in International Studies, and never really left. As an undergrad, she co-founded the UW Dream Project. As she pursued her masters and eventually her PhD at the UW in educational policy, she continued to grow the Dream Project’s reach and scope, most recently as the program’s executive director. Her academic pursuits led her to focus on regional collective impact strategies that aim to dismantle institutional and systems structures in order to increase educational attainment outcomes, especially for marginalized students. She is now the Special Advisor for Postsecondary Success & Advancement for the UW’s College of Education and Undergraduate Academic Affairs, working on a Gates-funded research study investigating higher education capacity to meet labor market needs in Puget Sound. She is also an adjunct lecturer for the Higher Education Leadership graduate program in the College of Education, teaching about cradle through college theories and approaches to education and economic prosperity. Jenée sits at the intersection of big data, the lives of students/families/practitioners, and rigorous research. She is leading the way for systems changes that will increase equity and prosperity in our region, and from which other regions and states across the country can learn and build.
