Anthony Abraham Jack will discuss how class and culture shape how undergraduates navigate college by exploring the experiential core of college life -- those too often overlooked moments between getting into college and graduation. He will shed 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 Disadvantages - lower income undergraduates who graduate from public, typically distressed high schools.
Drawing on interviews and observational data, Jack will discuss the social and personal costs of exclusion and implictation on undergraduates' opportunities and social well-being. His findings are included in his book, The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges are Failing Disadvantaged Students.
