Anthony Jack, in Conversation with Cecilia Rouse (webinar)


Event Description

An Inclusive Teaching at Princeton event

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 from 4:30 – 5:45 pm via Zoom Webinar

Join us as sociologist Anthony Jack, Assistant Professor of Education at Harvard and author of The Privileged Poor(link is external) (Harvard UP, 2020) engages in conversation with Cecilia Rouse, Dean of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA), the Katzman-Ernst Professor in Economics and Education, and professor of economics and public affairs. Their conversation will consider the campus lives of lower-income students, the “unwritten rules” or “hidden curriculum” of elite colleges, and the difference between “access” and “inclusion” at elite institutions. Jack will describe how class divides on campus create barriers to academic success—and share what schools can do to truly level the playing field.
