HCEO is pleased to announce that applications are now open for our masters-level Summer School on Socioeconomic Inequality, to be held at the University of Chicago from July 30-August 3, 2018.

SSSI 2018 will provide a state-of-the-art overview of the study of inequality through lectures from leading faculty representing a broad array of disciplines, including neuroscience, economics, and public policy. Students will learn how to integrate psychological, sociological, and economic perspectives in order to examine the causes and consequences of inequality. Through rigorous lectures, student-faculty interaction, and open discussion, participants will acquire the skills needed to deepen their understanding of inequality, and to study the dynamic processes that produce conditions of inequality as well as ways to address it.

This is HCEO's sixth SSSI Chicago, but our first geared entirely towards masters students. Faculty speakers for the week include: HCEO Co-director Steven Durlauf (University of Chicago); Branko Milanovic (Graduate Center at the City University of New York); Kimberly Noble (Columbia University); Richard V. Reeves (Brookings Institution); Harold Pollack (University of Chicago); Glenn Loury (Brown University); Damon Jones (University of Chicago); and Dana Suskind (University of Chicago).
The summer school is open to masters-level students and practitioners from around the world. Participants will be selected from a diverse pool of applicants, representing many disciplines, including: economics, sociology, public health, public policy, and education.
