- Director of Special Projects
Hello. My name is David duKor-Jackson, and I had the great fortune to serve as an MIT Admissions Officer for several years. During my initial tenure at MIT, I had a number of responsibilities including my dual roles as an Associate Director of Admissions (traveling, giving presentations, reading applications and participating in the admissions committee) and serving as the Director of Minority Recruitment, leading efforts to ensure that qualified students from a variety of backgrounds investigated and applied to MIT.
While I truly enjoyed my work in the MIT Admissions Office and the college admissions offices that preceded it, my desire to work more closely with students trying to make big decisions won out, leading me to switch to the “other side of the desk” working in college counseling for a number of years.
But alas, the gravitational pull of MIT was just too great, drawing me back to the Institute in a new role managing a variety of special projects.
