Anthony Abraham Jack
A native of Miami, Anthony Abraham Jack received a scholarship to attend Gulliver Prep, an elite private high school in south Florida. He went on to receive degrees from Amherst College and Harvard University. He is currently a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows, an Assistant Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the Shutzer Assistant Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. His research documents the overlooked diversity among lower-income undergraduates: the Doubly Disadvantaged--those who enter college from local, typically distressed public high schools--and Privileged Poor--those who do so from boarding, day, and preparatory high schools. The New York Times, Boston Globe, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, The National Review, The Washington Post, American RadioWorks, and NPR have featured his research as well as biographical profiles of his experiences as a first-generation college student.
