Concerned with the economic, political, social, and cultural dimensions that create an inequity of resources, opportunity, and capabilities, Cook Center researchers take a cross-national comparative approach to studying human difference and disparity.
The Cook Center organizes its research as well as its programmatic and scholarship activities around its four primary research domains: Class, Wealth, & Social Mobility; Education & Training; Employment; and Health & Well-being.
The Cook Center has several programs that explore inequality in our communities and engage scholars of all levels, including a summer research program for local high schoolers and a recurring research seminar for undergraduate and graduate students.
