The Hunt Institute’s mission is to provide unbiased research, technical expertise, and learning opportunities that equip and empower educators and policymakers to drive equitable reforms and become audacious champions for education.
Since its establishment in 2001, The Hunt Institute has emerged as a recognized and credible leader in the movement to transform American public education and a go-to source for reliable, objective, and timely information. The Institute works at the intersection of education policy and politics, supporting state and national officials and empowering them to transform education. The Institute’s mandate is to inspire and equip elected officials and senior policymakers to make informed decisions that improve the lives of all children, with its primary audience consisting of governors, legislators, and other elected and state-level policymakers.
The Associate Policy Analyst (APA) maintains an understanding of education policy issues and readily translates them into publications and curriculum for senior-level state policymakers. The APA conducts research and analysis on relevant policy issues and provides information for grant reports, policy briefs, primers, and case studies for dissemination. The APA will report directly to either a Senior Policy Analyst or Director of Policy and be based out of The Institute’s office in Cary, North Carolina.
