Director, Postsecondary and Workforce Pathways

The Data Quality Campaign (DQC) is a national nonprofit policy and advocacy organization that envisions a world where data policy is used to drive systemic change, economic mobility, and student success. DQC is leading the effort to bring every part of the education community together to empower educators, families, and policymakers with quality information to make decisions that ensure students excel. To realize this vision, DQC works toward three goals:

1) Increase public understanding of the value of data in supporting the student journey through the P–20W pipeline (early education, K–12, postsecondary, and workforce).

2) Build the capacity of policy and education leaders to develop trust with communities to ensure data is used effectively.

3) Ensure that state leaders use the policy levers available to them across P–20W to make data work for students and communities.

If you want to work with one of the country’s leading education advocacy organizations that supports your passion for helping students achieve their best throughout education and into the workforce, DQC is the place for you. We believe deeply in using data as the vehicle for improving educational outcomes, and we need passionate individuals to champion our mission. Join our team today!


The Director of Postsecondary and Workforce Pathways will advance DQC’s mission by developing an understanding of the postsecondary education and workforce landscape; deepening and expanding critical relationships in the policy and education field; and building an advocacy strategy. This position is grounded in the DQC values of listening and applying what we learn to our work, and staying grounded in what is happening now in states, communities, and classrooms, while always looking ahead.


Starting salary range of $110,000–$140,000, commensurate with qualifications.
