Forum 37:

Colleges and Intergenerational Income Mobility in America

Held Monday, May 14, 2018

Forum Summary

In his lecture, Professor Saez will focus on a topic of great interest in both higher education and society at large: the potential of a college degree to raise one’s income level. To illuminate this topic, he will present his research data, compiled for each four-year college and university in America, on graduates’ earnings in their early thirties and their parents’ incomes. Professor Saez will address the following critical questions, among others: Do colleges in America alleviate or worsen income inequalities? Which colleges contribute the most to helping children climb the income ladder? And how can we increase access to such colleges for children from low-income families?
