Alexandra Lozanoff was Deputy Director of Teaching and Learning on the National Program team of Peer Health Exchange (PHE), a national non-profit organization that trains college students to teach health workshops in public high schools. She managed strategic initiatives to improve PHE’s teaching quality in volunteers and coached local Program Directors to implement a high quality program reaching nearly 20,000 teens in six cities. Her work with PHE and public high schools led her to appreciate the complex challenges that students face and inspired her to work to address education inequity in the US.
Alexandra hopes to develop her education policy expertise and looks forward to applying what she learns at GSPP in her Introduction to Policy Analysis (IPA) and Advanced Policy Analysis (APA) projects. She particularly looks forward to gaining the quantitative skills that will prepare her to manage anything from financials to program evaluation. Alex is currently a Berkeley Board Fellow, a mentor for the Getting into Grad School program for undergraduates, and is about to start an evaluation project with the Center for Cities and Schools.
Alexandra graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, with a B.A. in Diplomatic History and a minor in French.
