Research Initiative:

Greg Duncan, Edwina S. Tarry Professor of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University, will write an accessible, non-technical book profiling Milwaukee's successful New Hope project, arguing that similar support programs for low-wage workers can and should be developed to assist people in climbing from poverty. He will also continue research investigating how the random pairing of college roommates with different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds impacts students’ views on racial and economic issues.
