Presenter bio: Nancy Jodaitis, Director of Higher Education Initiatives, Educators for Fair Consideration

For almost twenty years, Nancy has been working to increase admission and graduation rates for underrepresented students in higher education. She most recently served as an AB 540 / Undocumented Student Advisor at San Francisco State University, where she was also advisor to SFSU's chapter of Improving Dreams, Equity, Access and Success (IDEAS), a student-run group providing resources and support for AB540 students. Prior to that, Nancy served as a pre-admissions advisor, transfer counselor, financial aid officer, and scholarship specialist. Through these varied roles, Nancy has developed a comprehensive understanding of the enrollment process and a solid track record of institutional advocacy. 

Nancy has worked tirelessly to build educational pathways for undocumented students within California, conduct trainings about applying for the California Dream Act, identify key challenges that colleges and universities face when supporting undocumented students, and elevate institutional best practices.  She has also developed a library of educational materials to help undocumented students in California successfully enroll in CA public colleges and universities, and be sure they receive all financial aid for which they are eligible.   

Since 2009, Nancy has been active with E4FC, beginning as a volunteer with our Educator Action Group, and later serving in various capacities as a trainer, researcher, and consultant. Nancy joined E4FC as Director of Higher Education Initiatives in July 2016.
