Jackson Kytle is the Interim Dean of Innovation, Policy, and Research (IPR). In that role, he oversees the College Library, Bank Street Head Start, the high school dropout-prevention and college-readiness program Liberty LEADS, Occasional Papers, and other grant-funded and contract-based research and policy initiatives.
Jackson also leads Bank Street’s Middle States Self-Study, the decennial review of the College and its major programs, focusing on the Graduate School of Education. The self-study will culminate in spring 2015, when the review team from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education — Bank Street’s regional accrediting association — visits the campus. His work on the Self-Study is informed by his previous experience as a Commissioner and member of the Commission's Finance Committee.
Prior to Bank Street, Jackson held several leadership positions at major colleges and universities. He was Deputy Provost of The New School, President of Goddard College, and Provost of Antioch University, a progressive college in the tradition of John Dewey. Jackson holds Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Columbia University and a B.A. in English from Middlebury College. He lives in New York and Vermont.
