Sherry Deckman, Department of Education, presented, “Beyond the Numbers: Institutional Influences on Experiences with Diversity on Elite College Campuses” at the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting this summer in San Francisco. The paper, co-authored with Natasha Warikoo (Harvard University), draws on 77 in-depth interviews with students from two different universities. The paper argues that though the schools have demographically similar student bodies, different institutional approaches can have significant impact on students’ campus diversity experiences. The full paper will be published in Sociological Forum this winter.
