The Center for the Study of Inequality (CSI) fosters basic and applied research on social and economic inequalities, as well as the processes by which such inequalities change and persist. As the structure of inequality continues to evolve in unpredictable ways, it becomes increasingly important to develop formal models of the sources and causes of inequality, thus moving beyond the conventional applied research that has dominated the field for decades.

The minor in Inequality Studies is an interdisciplinary program that may be completed with any major.
Since the program's inception in 2003, 486 undergraduates from five of Cornell's colleges have earned the Minor in Inequality Studies.
Interested students should complete this enrollment form as soon as they intend to minor in Inequality Studies.
See the Fall 2014 courses that satisfy the minor's requirements.
This course is the primary requirement for completion of the Minor in Inequality Studies and is offered each fall.
The CSI Inequality Quiz is designed to reveal your IQ (Inequality Quotient). Because this IQ is an acquired not innate capacity, students scoring below 100% can expect substantial gains by completing the Inequality Studies Minor.
