Annual Dinner

with Dr. Anthony Jack

Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and Assistant Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

Dr. Anthony Jack, Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and Assistant Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, will join us on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at Maggiano’s Little Italy, Buckhead for our Annual Dinner. Dr. Jack, who recently published the book, “The Priviledged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Poor Students”, has garnered national attention and we are sure this will be a great night.


Anthony Abraham Jack (Ph.D., Harvard University, 2016) is a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows and Assistant Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He holds the Shutzer Assistant Professorship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

His research documents the overlooked diversity among lower-income undergraduates: the Doubly Disadvantaged­—those who enter college from local, typically distressed public high schools—and Privileged Poor­—those who do so from boarding, day, and preparatory high schools. His scholarship appears in the Du Bois Review, Sociological Forum, and Sociology of Education and has earned awards from the American Sociological Association, Eastern Sociological Society, and the Society for the Study of Social Problems. Tony held fellowships from the Ford Foundation and the National Science Foundation and was a 2015 National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellow. The National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan named him a 2016 Emerging Diversity Scholar. 

The New York Times, Boston Globe,The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, The National Review, The Washington Post, The Hechinger Report, American RadioWorks, and NPR have featured his research and writing as well as biographical profiles of his experiences as a first-generation college student. His book, The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, is available now.
