Cara Wong

Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Wong will study how individuals perceive and react to their environments, using a new map‐drawing measure of people’s “local communities.” Using multiple survey datasets, she will investigate how individuals’ perceptions of the racial and ethnic characteristics of their locales affect their intergroup attitudes, civic engagement, and their preferences for policies that address immigration and social inequities.
