Meet Ivy Alphonse-Crean
DCD’s Director of DEI
After defining the role and executing an extensive search, we are excited to welcome Ivy Alphonse-Crean to DCD in this pivotal and vital role.
Ivy is joining us from the Collegiate School, a K-12 school in Manhattan where she serves as a Grade 6 Dean and English faculty member. Ivy brings a longstanding commitment and passion for DEI work. During her time at Collegiate, she’s instituted, led, and managed many students and faculty endeavors. Ivy will be moving to Boston with her husband, Jared, and one-year-old son, Wesley, this summer to begin her role at DCD on July 1.
“There is already a lot of good work happening at DCD. There are SEED groups, affinity spaces for students and families, clubs and events, and the Horizons Program. Institutions like DCD are doing amazing things, but people from different parts of the organization don’t always know what’s outside their scope. In this first year, I see my role as the person connecting all these great initiatives in the classrooms and around the school and making sure they are all under one unified purpose and working in concert”. – Ivy Alphonse-Crean
