Collegiate Assocation for Inequality Research

We are a student-led initiative working to promote academic research on Inequality - in all of its forms. Through peer mentoring, research groups, and conferences, our goal is to create an interdisciplinary community of researchers and activists who care deeply about the study of inequality.
