The CPC is honored to receive Atlantic Philanthropies' generous endowment to fund post-doctoral fellows in honor of former Cornell president, Frank H. T. Rhodes. April Sutton
is the most recent Frank H.T. Rhodes Post-doctoral Fellow
. She has a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Texas-Austin (2015). Broadly, her research areas of interest are education, social stratification and mobility, and life course transitions. The underlying objective of her work across these core areas is to investigate the circumstances under which schools and communities widen or narrow educational and labor force inequalities. She focuses on racial/ethnic, gender, and spatial dimensions of inequality during critical life transitions from adolescence through early adulthood. She is currently working on projects in collaboration with Kim Weeden
while in residence.
