Carol Buchser has been Rose Academies’ Board Secretary since its founding in 2014 and has been instrumental in the growth of our organization to an internationally recognized leader in educational programs for the vulnerable and oppressed populations found in LMICs.
Ms. Buchser has an extensive background in a diversity of sectors which include education, technology, and investor relations. She spent years teaching in the public school system that led her to a position as Associate Research Scientist at American Institutes for Research. At the Institute, she was responsible for the development of a concept of using the vocational education program as a means of advancing economic enterprise. This proposal set the standard for economic enterprise development within the vocational education program, which was eventually renamed the highly successful CTE of Career Technical Education Program. The CTE program is one of Rose Academies’ programs that encourage vocational skills development for improved economic income.
Ms. Buchser turned her skills over to the technology industry where she worked as Director of Investor Relations for five different public companies. During that time, she also served as President of the Silicon Valley Chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute (“NIRI”). Ms. Buchser received her Bachelor of Arts from Swarthmore College and her Masters of Science from the University of Pennsylvania.
