Dr. McRae joined the University of Vermont Transportation Research Center in 2011 to direct the Transportation Education Development Pilot Program (TEDDP) and the new Certificate of Graduate Study in Sustainable Transportation Systems and Planning (STSP). He has been active in the national network on Transportation Workforce Development and the Council of University Transportation Centers workforce group, serving as a member of the leadership team that organized the National Summit topic in April 2012. The Vermont-based pilot work built career pathway approaches across high school, community college, university, adult education and professional development programs. This work has expanded to covering 11 states and the District of Columbia as the UVM TRC was designated the Northeast Transportation Workforce Center by FHWA in 2014.
He has spent the last thirty years creating and implementing programs and initiatives in Vermont and around the country that build organizational capacity and empower people to more fully participate and engage in their community, their enterprises and their government. He has lead various nonprofit enterprises, directed public policy initiatives at the Snelling Center for Government and established a statewide leadership and capacity building program for the Vermont Community Foundation. He has also worked extensively with international efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of the health care industry, including efforts for the World Bank, USAID and the World Health Organization. From 2002-2012 he was a consultant to the Global Environmental Facility project developing training curriculum, train-the-trainer programs, university certificate programs, and pilot projects demonstrating and promoting the use of best practices and techniques for healthcare waste management in seven countries. He holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the Union Institute & University.
