Devon Trotter is the Finance and Grants Manager at the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP). Devon’s responsibilities include managing the day-to-day financial and grants management of the organization, with primary areas of responsibilities including financial reporting, programmatic budget oversight, financial data processing and reporting, and grant and contract compliance.
Devon’s belief in the mission of IHEP runs deep as he obtained his B.A. from the College of William and Mary of Virginia in 2006, not only as a first-generation student, but also as a recipient of the William and Mary Scholars Award which is presented to students who are achieving at a high level having overcome significant adversity and/or are members of underrepresented groups who would contribute to the diversity of the campus.
Devon brings a decade of professional experience to IHEP, having managed the finances for major for-profit organizations including SAP and Accenture, as well as nonprofit organizations such as Human Rights Campaign and the Pew Charitable Trusts.
When he’s not crunching numbers, Devon can be found traveling the globe, volunteering for and mentoring at-risk youth, and DJing at local clubs in Washington, D.C.
