College of Education faculty are encouraged to join participants online for "From Understanding Inequality to Reducing Inequality," a virtual forum co-sponsored by the Institute of Human Development and Social Change at New York University, the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality at the CUNY Graduate Center, the Center for the Study of Wealth and Inequality at Columbia University, and the William T. Grant Foundation, on the potential of research to help build and strengthen efforts to address inequality and delineate pathways through which research may lead to large-scale social change.
How does a discipline move from investigating a problem to investigating responses? This question is at the heart of a new Special Collection of Socius: Sociological Research for a Dynamic World, which explores ways for social scientists to move beyond describing and quantifying the problem of inequality and to focus instead on ways to reduce it.
