Tali Mendelberg

Professor of Political Science, Princeton University

Mendelberg will conduct an in-depth analysis of the consequences of affluence on American college campuses, looking at how concentrations of high-income students at universities may reinforce economic inequality. She will explore whether the presence of many affluent students creates social norms on campuses that prioritize the wealthy and marginalize low-income students, thereby leading to lower rates of leadership and future political participation among low-income young adults.
