Michael Blauw
Director of Civic Learning and Strategic Partnerships

Michael is a proud alumnus of We the People. The program ignited in him a passion for political science and philosophy, eventually impelling him to become an educator.

He graduated from Hope College as a certified social studies teacher with a BA in political science. He then taught English in Malaysia as a Fulbright Scholar (where he met his wife). Once back in the United States, he taught several years of government, AP government, English, and of course, We the People in his home state of Michigan and Nashville, Tennessee.

He then attended the Harvard Graduate School of Education and worked at Harvard’s Center for Ethics managing programs in educational ethics and civic education. He most recently worked for Wisconsin’s Department of Public Instruction as an education policy consultant.

He, his wife, and his newborn son live in Madison, Wisconsin, and enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, most sports, and obviously, cheese curds.
