The Center for the Study of Inequality is honored to receive a 10 million dollar grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies to advance inequality scholarship and its impact at Cornell University. “Under Kim Weeden’s leadership of the Center for the Study of Inequality, we are poised to become a world-class research leader, as well as a major resource for developing more effective policy solutions to one of the most significant threats to democracy and social inclusion in our lifetime,” said Gretchen Ritter ’83, the Harold Tanner Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Cornell University’s Center for the Study of Inequality (CSI) is devoted to understanding patterns, causes, and consequences of social and economic inequality. CSI fosters new and cutting-edge research, trains undergraduate and graduate students, encourages the exchange of ideas among inequality researchers, and disseminates research findings to a broader public. Since the program’s inception in 2003, over 600 undergraduates have earned the Minor in Inequality Studies.
