Steve Shaff


Originally from the Philadelphia area, Shaff moved to Washington, DC in 1986 as a George Washington University doctoral candidate seeking a PhD in Political and Social Psychology. Prior to GWU, he earned 2 years of college credit from the University of Maryland, European Division, while stationed in Germany while serving in the U.S. Army.  He graduated from West Chester (PA) University after his Army service earning a BA in Psychology. Despite a promising career in academia, Shaff took a leave of absence from his doctoral program to seek a more ‘applied’ path to creating substantive social and economic change.  He’s been an avid idealist, realist, social entrepreneur, organizer and political activist ever since.
