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 diversity their campuses. In his talk (given to a standing room only crowd on October 6th), Dr. Jack examined how class and culture shape how undergraduates navigate college by exploring the “experiential core of college life,” those too often overlooked moments between getting in and graduating. Drawing on data from interviews with 103 undergraduates and two years of ethnographic observation at an elite university alongside administrative and archival data, he interrogates the social and personal costs of exclusion that have implications for undergraduates’ objective opportunities and their social well-being. Anthony (Tony) Jack is a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows. After his tenure at the Society of Fellows, Tony will serve as an Assistant Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education where he will also hold the Shutzer Assistant Professorship at the Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study.
