Interim Director, Center for Impact Finance
Chuck Hotchkiss

Over his 45-year career, Chuck Hotchkiss has worked as a policy researcher, a professor teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, a community organizer, and a higher education administrator at the department chair, dean, and associate provost levels. Two themes that run through his work are participatory decision making and belief in the importance of data and basic statistical analysis. Chuck has put those themes into practice in a variety of endeavors, including policy work on housing and energy, the creation of Granite State Organizing Project (where he served as the founding organizer), pro bono consulting with religious and secular non-profit organizations, and (most recently) as a local elected official.

Chuck holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Bates College, and master’s and doctoral degrees in City and Regional Planning from Cornell University.
