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.
This is the third week of #ColorofEducation, a series of virtual conversations we are co-hosting with @DukeSocialEQ and @DukeChildPol about racial equity in education. Join us this week to talk about policing and schools. Register: https://colorofeducation.org/2020summit/
Cook Center Postdoctoral Associate Dr. Paul Robbins will be moderating the next Color of Education discussion on Policing and Schools. #ColorofEducation
