Katharine Meyer

Katharine Meyer is a fellow in the Governance Studies program for the Brown Center on Education Policy at Brookings. Meyer focuses on how individuals access knowledge needed to make informed decisions about their postsecondary education opportunities – and how to build successful, scalable strategies to ensure greater access to that information. Her current work explores how to support college retention and completion through virtual advising, the effect of school counselors on college access, and the design of state financial aid programs. Her work has previously been published in journals such as the “Journal of Human Resources, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, and Daedalus”. Meyer holds a Ph.D. in Educational Policy, a Masters of Public Policy, and a B.A. in Government from the University of Virginia.
