About this Event

What does it mean to be a poor student on a rich campus? This question is all the more important as colleges and universities continue to take affirmative steps to socioeconomically diversify their campuses. Dr. Anthony Jack examines how class and culture shape how undergraduates navigate college. He sheds new light on how inequality is reproduced by contrasting the experiences of the privileged poor — lower-income students who graduate from boarding, day, and preparatory high schools— and the doubly disadvantaged — lower income undergraduates who graduate from public, typically distressed high schools.

An assistant professor at Harvard and author of The Privileged Poor, Jack—once a low-income, first-generation college student himself—studies how poor students are often failed by the top schools that admit them. He details how class divides on campus create barriers to academic success and shares what schools can do to truly level the playing field.

Lecture with Q&A and book signing to follow.
