Kristin Bosetti

Senior Center Manager, Center for Education Policy

Kristin Bosetti has more than 10 years of experience leading and managing research projects and people. She contributes to Center development through building staff capacity and oversees operational, financial, and planning aspects of the Center. Bosetti conducts research on K–16 education reform initiatives with a focus on education partnerships, transitions to postsecondary education, college and career readiness, and teacher development.

Currently Bosetti is the project director for the Evaluation of Linked Learning: San Bernardino, which aims to transform high schools through programs of study that integrate rigorous academic instruction with a demanding technical curriculum and work-based learning. With support from a federal Investing in Innovation (i3) grant, the project is developing a system of career-themed academic pathways throughout the district to improve student cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes. Bosetti’s other project work includes the Evaluation of the Los Angeles City College (LACC) STEM Pathways Program. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI) STEM and Articulation Program, the LACC STEM Pathways Program seeks to increase the number and percentage of Hispanic and low-income students attaining degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) and to develop transfer and articulation agreements with four-year institutions in such fields. Bosetti is also involved in the Evaluation of the Long Beach Skills for Success Grant. With funding from the Office of Innovation and Improvement, the district is developing tools and strategies to improve students’ non-cognitive skills with an emphasis on STEM.

Previously, Bosetti was the project director for the Evaluation of the California Academic Partnership Program’s Demonstration Partnership Project. An innovative statewide project to foster seamless transitions from high school to college and to strengthen instructional quality as required by the Common Core by fostering partnerships between high schools and a local community college. Bosetti’s prior research also includes The Evaluation of the California Linked Learning District Initiative, a multiyear study of a major systemic effort to transform high schools through programs of study that integrate rigorous academic instruction with a demanding technical curriculum and work-based learning. In addition she contributed to several studies of teacher development including the Evaluation of the California Subject Matter Projects and the National Evaluation of Writing Project School Partnerships.

Bosetti is experienced in managing large projects with both qualitative and quantitative research methods, including case study design, qualitative data collection and analysis, and the integration of data from multiple sources. Bosetti holds an M.A. in education/social sciences in educational practice from Stanford University. She earned her B.S. in economics from Santa Clara University. Before joining SRI, Bosetti worked for several entrepreneurial community ventures where she launched websites, helped to design and implement evaluation systems, and co-founded a leadership program for middle-school aged girls.
