Enrique Romero is an Associate in the Equity, Education, and Community Change Division, where he supports evaluation and strategic learning projects for philanthropic foundations and non-profits. He is passionate about education equity, education policy, and culturally responsive student-centered learning that creates opportunities for historically underrepresented students.
Enrique has experience with both qualitative and quantitative research methods. He has designed qualitative data collection tools and engaged in interviews and focus groups with parents, district leaders, educators, and legislative staff. He has also supported survey administration and analysis. His grasp of mixed-method skills has allowed him to contribute to the development of high-quality deliverables for both organizations and communities that were engaged during the evaluation. Enrique is fluent in Spanish, which has allowed him to support with translation and interpretation throughout multiple phases of an evaluation. Prior to joining SPR, he was a research assistant for projects focused on underrepresented students in higher education, college access, and non-profit education organizations. In addition, Enrique was a Program Officer for the Fulbright Commission in Mexico (COMEXUS), where he managed the Fulbright-García Robles Mexican Graduate Studies Program, as well as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant to Mexico.
Enrique received his Ed.M. in Education Policy and Management from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and his B.A. in Sociology and Spanish from Pitzer College.
