In the past twelve years, he founded the Delaware Valley Consortium for Excellence and Equity along with five other networks that are currently serving and supporting over 100 school districts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Delaware in creating more equitable outcomes in achievement and attainment of their historically underachieving students most often defined by race/ethnicity, economic disadvantage, language, and disability.

“I’m thrilled to support an organization like IGE,” Dr. Jarvis said. “The mission is one I’ve spent my career fighting toward, because ethical institutions make for an ethical world, one with greater equality of opportunity.”

Dr. Jarvis has worked with many of the same sorts of institutions and organizations that IGE focuses on, including school districts, state and national professional organizations, administrators, and governmental organizations. His commitment to diversity, equality, and justice has characterized his participation at every level.
