Diane Hirshberg is the director of the Center for Alaska Education Policy Research—a center within ISER—as well as a professor of education policy at ISER. The center was established in 2011 to conduct non-partisan research on education policy issues at all levels of education—from early childhood education through higher and adult education.

Dr. Hirshberg has a broad interest in education policy analysis, with a focus on Alaska Native education, as well as issues affecting other ethnic, racial, and linguistic minorities. Her research at ISER has included studies of long-term effects of boarding schools on Alaska Native students and assessments of turnover among Alaska’s school teachers.

Before joining ISER in 2003, she was a visiting assistant professor of educational leadership at the University of Oregon and a project manager at Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE), an education policy research organization based at UC Berkeley. There she directed the California Department of Social Services Child Care Planning Project, a multi-year look at the impact of welfare reform on the supply of and demand for childcare in California.

She was born in Massachusetts, and clings to her Red Sox obsession, despite moving to California when she was 10.
