T1W 2024 Keynote Speaker
Dr. Anthony Abraham Jack

“The question of if diversity is worth it is ever present and not just at colleges but at organizations of all stripes. The answer is – yes, it is. But we should not be surprised when certain new groups struggle. We must move from access to inclusion, and data will help in this endeavor.”

As a sociologist, author, and associate professor of higher education at Boston University, Dr. Anthony Abraham Jack’s research focuses on diversity efforts in higher-education and how lower-income students are often overlooked and left out.

In his acclaimed 2019 book, “The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges are Failing Disadvantaged Students,” Jack explores the topic of poverty and higher education by examining the different experiences and struggles of two groups of students – the “privileged poor” and the “doubly disadvantaged.”
