Announcement FAQ

About Us

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.

Our Research

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.

Our Programs

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.

Dr. Clinton Boyd, Jr., a Postdoctoral Associate at the Cook Center was recently featured on podcast called Bending the Arc.
