Provost’s Equity Fellow
“Illuminating patterns of inequality is only the first step; place inquiry and spatial methods have the potential to help education researchers generate explanations for why these patterns exist and how the collective power of individuals can disrupt these patterns. By collecting data about places and listening to the people who occupy those places, education researchers can produce scholarship that moves us toward greater equity and justice in schools and communities.”
