Admission Isn’t Acceptance: Anthony Jack Reveals the Plight of Low-Income Kids at Ivy League Schools in The Privileged Poor

Even though the Ivy League has opened their doors to a more diverse student body, less privileged students still struggle. Drawing from his own experiences, as well as dozens of interviews with undergraduates at one of America’s most prestigious colleges, Anthony Jack’s The Privileged Poor (out now) reveals what happens to students who don’t have the background, family support or cultural capital to navigate elite colleges. 

University policies and campus culture needs to change in order to truly welcome and encourage a diverse student body, and in talks like the one below, Jack provides concrete advice to help reduce the hidden disadvantages we can’t afford to ignore.
