Victor Phu is a Master of Public Policy candidate at the Goldman School of Public Policy seeking to disrupt the cycle of intergenerational poverty and guarantee equity and opportunity for our most underserved youth through education & urban policy. 

Prior to graduate school, Victor served as a Data, Partnerships, & Planning Analyst in the African American Achievement & Leadership Initiative in SFUSD, where he was tasked to close the academic achievement gap for African American youth in San Francisco by developing results-based accountability and data-driven frameworks for strategy implementation. Additionally, Victor was employed as a City Hall Fellow for the City & County of San Francisco tasked to create the My Brother & Sister's Keeper Local Action Plan, which outlines the City and County of San Francisco's plan to develop a cradle-to-college and career pathway for our African American, Latino, & Pacific Islander students.

Following graduate school, Victor seeks to go back to his hometown—East San Jose, and utilize his accumulated experiences and knowledge to work at the intersection of urban and education policy and create a robust cradle-to-college and career pathway for low-income students of color.
