Dr. Jon Herrin joins our team as a consultant to serve as Co-Director of Research and Evaluation with Erin Doran. He will oversee our quantitative work and will also be part of the Professional Development and Communications teams.
Jon has been involved in higher education for over 28 years, having taught and worked in colleges and universities in Georgia, Michigan, Texas, Venezuela and Mexico. He has taught writing, literature, humanities and religion. In addition to teaching, Jon has worked in institutional assessment and academic administration. In institutional assessment (South Texas College), he worked with departments and offices of the college to develop intervention assessment plans and assessment tools, with educational entities to track and report student success, and with administrative leaders and college-wide departments to formulate institutional strategic plans. In academic administration (El Seminario Metodista Juan Wesley, Mexico), his primary task was to align the curriculum of the institution he was serving with the national oversight entity (la Secretaria de Educación), and he also worked in curriculum development and faculty training.
As an educational consultant with Catch the Next, he brings together his years of experience and training to impact the lives of first-time-in-college students through research, professional development, and student mentoring programs.
