Anthony Jack

Professor Anthony Jack will deliver the inaugural keynote address for the CSU Presidential Speaker Series. Jack, sociologist and assistant professor of education at Harvard University, is transforming the way we address diversity and inclusion in education.

His new book reframes the conversation surrounding poverty and higher education. “No matter how much a student knows about Chopin and Beethoven, at the end of the month, they’re still hungry,” Jack says.

He reveals how organizations — from administrators and association organizers to educators and student activists — can ask the right questions and bridge the gap.
