Brian Powell

James H. Rudy Professor of Sociology, Indiana University

Powell will work on a book on how Americans view access to higher education. Drawing from interviews and six years of data collection on views of higher education, he will investigate the extent to which the public believes college access should be expanded, and what role the government, families, and students should play in funding higher education. He will also analyze how public opinion has contributed to the formulation of education policies.
