About Deans for Impact (DFI) 

At DFI, we envision a future where every child is taught by well-prepared teachers. We support educator-preparation programs (EPPs) to bring the science of learning into teaching practice; partner with policymakers to ensure that pathways into teaching are accessible, practice-based, and focused on equitable instruction; and equip leaders with the tools to address today’s most pressing challenges in educator preparation. Guided by principles of learning science, we aim to help aspiring and early-career teachers create rigorous and inclusive classrooms where all children thrive.

Our Values 

We believe that a great workplace is one where you are inspired by your colleagues and deeply engaged in your work every day. Six core values guide us:  

  • Design for inclusivity – We take deliberate steps to foster inclusivity in everything we do, from hiring to program design to identifying partners. We are attentive to our nation’s history and its ongoing impact on marginalized identities and communities, actively interrogate our biases, and work to create a sense of belonging for our team and partners. 
  • Be good stewards – We care deeply about our culture and organizational health, and we expect everyone to positively nurture its growth and evolution.  
  • Practice good pedagogy – We use knowledge of content and how the human mind works to create rigorous learning experiences that foster a sense of belonging, agency, and purpose, and we hold ourselves accountable for learning outcomes. 
  • Always seek solutions – We take a nimble approach to develop solutions to problems, test them, and then iterate based on what we’ve learned.  
  • Transform the system – We take the long view, shifting mindsets and everyday practices in order to counter pervasive historical inequities. 
  • Model professionalism – We model professionalism by seeking out feedback and fostering growth through honesty and humility.
