She is a Levy Institute Research Professor at Bard College and Distinguished Fellow at the Bard Prison Initiative. Previously, Lagemann served as Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education and President of the Spencer Foundation. She also has been President of the National Academy of Education and of the History of Education Society.
