Chairman, One Institution
Dr. Keenan Davis is a public policy entrepreneur with over 15 years of strategic and tactical deliverables in the public and private sector. Davis continues to leverage his passion for improving life trajectories in the sports and education space through social innovations. Currently, he serves as the Chairman and Senior Fellow at One Institution – a nonpartisan civic enterprise that improves public understanding of social justice movements and political discourse.
Prior to his current position, Davis spearheaded an online college degree program that was initially created at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The education start-up was designed to increase college access to underserved and underemployed individuals that traditionally would not look at a high quality degree as an option. For three years, he successfully led the growth and development of v1.0 and v2.0, eventually scaling the organization to the point of acquisition.
Earlier in his career, Davis spent nearly a decade working with iconic sports brands such as the Chicago Bulls and the National Football League Office in Communications & Governmental Affairs, and European operations roles. Davis holds a Doctorate from Northeastern University, Masters from Regis University, and Bachelors from Louisiana State University.
In addition, Davis is an Adjunct Professor at Northeastern University. He is happily married to Dr. Farah Husain and they have a daughter named Parsa.
