ITLC’s New Research Staff Member – Doug Nevins
Posted March 2022
Doug Nevins joins the ITLC with experience in research, public policy, and education program management. After attending Brandeis University, Doug worked as an admissions counselor at Emerson College and at Brandeis, focusing on international student recruitment and programming. Through working in higher education, he became interested in career pathways, adult education, and education policy. Doug recently completed a dual MPP/MBA degree program at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management, during which he interned with the City of Boston Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development and the Institute for Higher Education Policy, engaging in research exploring the impact of the pandemic on training program participants and students.
Doug is excited to join the team deploying the new Transit Workforce Center. He looks forward to supporting efforts to expand proven workforce development models including labor-management partnerships and apprenticeship, with a focus on frontline workers in public transit – a sector that is crucial to addressing climate change and making communities more accessible and livable.
A Massachusetts native, Doug is looking forward to relocating to the DC area from Boston. As a fan of new and classic movies, he is excited to check out the AFI Silver Theater in downtown Silver Spring, and also hopes to explore the region's restaurants, breweries, and music venues on the Metro.
