Michael Duffy

Great Oaks Foundation
New York City, New York
Michael Thomas Duffy is the President of the GO Foundation, which has a mission to provide public school students in low-income neighborhoods with access to a quality education through high dosage tutoring. Previously he worked at the NYC Department of Education under Chancellor Joel Klein, working for three years in the administration of Mayor Michael Bloomberg to expand the number of high quality charter schools in the city.

Michael’s efforts in education grew out of his work in the civil rights movement, having served as the Chairman and Commissioner of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ civil rights enforcement agency, a position he had for six years. Shortly after that experience, in 2000 he was on the founding board of trustees of the MATCH Charter School in Boston, where he first saw the power of high-dosage tutoring to change a student's educational trajectory.

Michael has also held leadership positions in the non-profit sector: he served on the Board of Directors of the Human Rights Campaign, for several years as its co-chair; two terms on the Vestry of St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Manhattan; and is currently chair of the board of the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts. He has a master’s degree in public policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard where he wrote his thesis on business support for child day care and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Trinity College in Connecticut with a degree in Economics. For the past 12 years he has served as an adjunct professor at the NYU/Wagner School of Public Service.
