(Madison, WI) —The Institute for Global Ethics is thrilled to announce
that Robert Jarvis,
Director of K-12 Outreach and Equity Leadership Initiatives in the Penn Center for Educational Leadership
in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania,
has agreed to join IGE’s Advisory Committee, effective immediately.
Dr. Jarvis has spent many years working with district and school administrators
and teachers in building their system’s capacities to better serve
the learning and developmental needs of all students. 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.
“He’s an absolutely invaluable addition to the team,”
said Anthony J. Gray, President and CEO of IGE. “It’s an honor
to have him on board. Having his voice in the room is really going to
make a huge difference.”
