Jekielek to lead ICPSR Education Archive
ICPSR is pleased to welcome Susan Jekielek as our new Director of the Education and Child Care Archive.
Jekielek comes to ICPSR from the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
While at OPRE, Jekielek oversaw early care and education research grants, and worked with agencies across the government to track and improve measurement of child and family well-being in national surveys. Jekielek has also held research appointments at the Center for Human Resource Research at Ohio State University and Child Trends, Inc. Recently, she participated in the design team for the National Study of Early Care and Education.
"We are very excited that Dr. Jekielek is joining us as Director of ICPSR's Education and Childcare Data Archive," said ICPSR Director George Alter. "Our activities in this area are expanding rapidly, and we have important projects with the National Center for Children in Poverty, the American Education Research Association, and the Gates Foundation. Dr. Jekielek brings a wealth of experience from both her own research on children and her work at the Administration for Children and Families."
Dr. Jekielek received her Ph.D. in Sociology from the Ohio State University.
