College Board Names Dr. Stefanie Sanford As Chief Of Policy, Advocacy, And Government Relations

Sanford will help lead the executive team at the College Board and oversee the policy agenda for the nonprofit organization, which serves an estimated 7 million students and 6,000 member institutions each year.  She will lead work with policymakers and public institutions to ensure that the College Board delivers rigorous coursework and the next generation of assessment. She will also work to ensure that the College Board dramatically improves outcomes for low income students and those of color.

Sanford is a former White House Fellow and is the author of a book on generational change in American politics: Civic Life in the Information Age: Politics, Technology and Generation X.

"The next three years open up huge opportunities to assure many more students are truly career and college ready," Sanford said. "I am excited to join the College Board because I believe, as its president does, that equity and excellence must advance together and that the College Board is uniquely placed to assure that recent policy victories translate into dramatically improved learning and outcomes for students."

Sanford added, "I am so grateful to have had a backstage pass to one of the great philanthropic efforts of our lifetimes.  I have learned so much from Bill, Melinda, and the extraordinary people who I have had the privilege to work with since the earliest days of the Foundation.  Our work at the College Board will continue to advance the impatient pursuit of social justice and economic opportunity for America's young people central to the Foundation's mission." 

College Board Announces Significant New Commitment to Excellence in Career and Technical Education led by Tom Rudin

At the same time as Sanford's appointment, the College Board today announced a substantial commitment to delivering high quality career technical education by appointing one of its most trusted senior leaders to lead this major initiative.
