Bettinger worked with President Nicole Farmer Hurd, founding CEO of the College Advising Corps (CAC), for a decade when she was expanding the nation’s largest college access program and focusing on instilling a culture of evaluation and improvement. He collaborated with her in strengthening that culture and providing outside validation of CAC’s efforts.

Director of the Center for Educational Policy Analysis and a Co-Director at the Lemann Center for Brazilian Education at Stanford, Bettinger has research interests in economics of education; student success and completion in college; the impacts of financial aid; teacher characteristics and student success in college; and effects of voucher programs on both academic and non-academic outcomes.

His research focuses on using rigorous statistical methods in identifying cause-and-effect relationships in higher education. His research has influenced recent efforts by the White House to simplify financial aid processes. Bettinger has served as a consultant to the White House and various state governments on financial aid policies.
