About Marc

Marc Skvirsky is presently the Vice President for Special Initiatives at Facing History and Ourselves. For over three decades Marc was a member of the senior management team, overseeing all aspects of organizational management, growth, and strategy. He joined Facing History and Ourselves 38 years ago, helping to develop it from a small educational nonprofit with a handful of staff to an international organization with 10 offices and partnerships around the globe. During his long tenure as CPO he directed all aspects of Facing History's program implementation in schools, districts, and educational networks, both in the U.S. and internationally. He was responsible for strategic planning; the ongoing professional development of Facing History's program staff focused on new scholarship, pedagogy, instructional technology, and educational trends; and the development and implementation of online learning. Marc developed content and outreach partnerships with filmmakers, authors, educational leaders, and scholars. He reviewed all Facing History publications and digital content, and designed Facing History-themed international study trips for stakeholders, including to South Africa, Eastern Europe, Northern Ireland, and the American South. He speaks at conferences and think tanks on topics ranging from school reform and civic education, to Holocaust and genocide studies, and social-emotional learning.

Before joining Facing History, Marc was a classroom teacher in Cambridge, Massachusetts, participating in the design team for an urban middle school magnet program, and teaching social studies and English. He received a B.A. in education and M.Ed. from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
