This series is only for first-year students, with each event limited to 10 students so that you can participate in the discussion and ask the questions that are on your mind. Students who attend will have the opportunity to meet outstanding members of the Harvard community over dinner at the Faculty Club. 


Anthony Abraham Jack (Ph.D., Harvard University, 2016) is an 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. Jack held fellowships from the Ford Foundation and the National Science Foundation and was a National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellow. The National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan named him an Emerging Diversity Scholar. In May 2020, Muhlenberg College will award him an honorary doctorate for his work in transforming higher education.
