Matt Morton

Social Protection Specialist, The World Bank

Major: Political Science
Organization: Phi Beta Kappa

Morton, currently working for the World Bank, was previously special advisor to the Commissioner of the U.S. Administration on Children, Youth & Families. "My experience at Stetson was transformative because it inspired my curiosity and my activism," he says. "I learned to ask a lot of questions and dig beneath the surface. At the same time, Stetson gave firsthand experience in applying research to action. Ever since, my life in research and public service has been defined by a commitment to tackling tough problems ranging from youth development to violence against women, but with a constant eye towards better understanding what works and what doesn't."
