Mark Roosevelt (born December 10, 1955) is the seventh president of the Santa Fe campus of St. John's College.[1] He was the President of Antioch College from January 2011 to December 2015[2] and superintendent of the Pittsburgh Public Schools, the second largest school district in Pennsylvania, until December 31, 2010.[3] He is also a former state legislator of Massachusetts and former Democratic candidate for governor of the commonwealth. Roosevelt is the great-grandson of 26th President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt grew up in Washington, D.C. with two brothers and a sister and attended St. Albans School. Roosevelt is the great-grandson of U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and the son of Mary Lowe "Polly" (Gaddis) and Kermit Roosevelt, Jr., who was one of the key figures behind the controversial coup engineered by the CIA that restored the Shah to power in Iran in 1953. He was related to his 1994 Massachusetts gubernatorial opponent William Weld through Weld's wife at that time, Susan Roosevelt Weld,[4] the daughter of Quentin Roosevelt II; Susan is Mark's second cousin. He earned his A.B. degree in history from Harvard University and a law degree from Harvard Law School. Career Political career In 1977, Roosevelt served as campaign manager for the late John O'Bryant, the first black man elected to Boston's school board.[4] He served in the Massachusetts General Court from 1986 to 1994.[5] In 1990, he was appointed Chairman of the legislature’s Education Committee, where he was the co-author and chief sponsor of the Education Reform Act of 1993.[6] He also was chief sponsor of a gay rights bill that had been introduced annually since 1972 but did not pass until 1989. The bill's passage made Massachusetts the second state, after Wisconsin, to pass legislation protecting gay rights.[7][8] In 1994, Roosevelt was the Democratic nominee for Governor of Massachusetts and lost the general election to the Republican incumbent, William Weld. Roosevelt and Weld were cousins by marriage: Weld's wife Susan Roosevelt Weld was also a great-grandchild of President Theodore Roosevelt. Following his bid for office, Roosevelt served as CEO of Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives, Managing Director of the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education, and as a Professor of Politics and head of the Gordon Public Policy Center at Brandeis University. Pittsburgh Public Schools A graduate of the 2003 Broad Superintendents Academy, Roosevelt was appointed on August 3, 2005, to the position of Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) superintendent. He accepted this post under the terms of a performance-based "accountability contract."[9] While in Pittsburgh, he implemented measures intended to ease the district's financial problems and improve academic standards. The plan included the closing of underutilized and under-performing schools, opening of accelerated learning academies with a vigorous academic curriculum and longer school hours, the moving of several programs, and an increase in the number of childhood education programs, K-8 schools and 6-12 schools.[10] Under his leadership, PPS met federal achievement standards (AYP) for the first time, received a $40-million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation focused on improving teacher effectiveness,[11] opened several innovative new schools,[12] adopted a more rigorous curriculum,[13] and inaugurated a nationally recognized program to recruit, train and support school principals as instructional leaders.[14] In 2007, Roosevelt founded The Pittsburgh Promise and secured a $100-million challenge grant from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The Promise has raised more than $180 million to guarantee college scholarships to PPS graduates who meet certain academic standards and has supported more than 6,500 students.[15] In October 2010 he became a finalist for the position of President of Antioch College.[16] On October 6, 2010, he held a press conference to announce his resignation as superintendent of Pittsburgh Public Schools effective December 31, 2010. It was reported that he was the only finalist for the Presidency of Antioch College in Ohio.[2][17] Antioch College Roosevelt served as president of Antioch College from 2011 to 2015.[18] Hired to reestablish the college, which had closed, Roosevelt helped to recruit faculty and students; began a renovation of the campus; and reestablished Antioch's cooperative education program. He also led a process that resulted in "fast-track" accreditation consideration for Antioch from the Higher Learning Commission.[19] The college won accreditation in July 2016.[20] He negotiated an agreement between the College and Antioch University—finalized in July 2013—that eliminated any future claims of the university to Antioch College’s campus or endowment. On May 5, 2015, Roosevelt announced his departure from Antioch by the end of the year.[21][22] Dr. Thomas Manley was hired as his successor, to begin in March 2016.[23] Roosevelt assumed the presidency of St. John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, replacing Michael P. Peters.[24] St. John's College Mark Roosevelt is the seventh president of the Santa Fe campus of St. John's College, which also has a campus in Annapolis, Maryland. He took office on January 1, 2016. In June of that year, the St. John's Board of Visitors and Governors voted to make Roosevelt the college-wide president as of July 1, 2016.[25] Other work Roosevelt has also taught graduate level courses on the intersection of American history and public policy at Brandeis University and the Heinz Graduate School of Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University.[26] Family He is married to Dorothy, the former project lead of Antioch College's Wellness Center, which opened to the public on September 6, 2014.[27] Prior to Antioch College, Dorothy worked at Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and as a yoga instructor. They married in January 2005 [4] and have a daughter, Juliana. Roosevelt also has a son, Matthew,[1] from a previous marriage. Why Buy From Chestnut Hill Books?
