Center for the Study of Inequality
Cornell University’s Center for the Study of Inequality (CSI) is devoted to understanding patterns, causes, and consequences of social and economic inequality. CSI fosters new and cutting-edge research, trains undergraduate and graduate students, encourages the exchange of ideas among inequality researchers, and disseminates research findings to a broader public. Since the program’s inception in 2003, over 750 undergraduates have earned the Minor in Inequality Studies. CSI is honored to receive a 10 million dollar grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies to advance inequality research at Cornell University.
