Examining Economic Inequality @SUNY Cortland
SUNY Cortland, one of 30 campuses participating in our ADP/TDC Economic Inequality Initiative, is launching a monthly series of lunchtime talks addressing issues of economic inequality beginning Tuesday, June 23.
Distinguished Service Professor of Sociology/Anthropology Craig Little will present “Pathways to Opportunity in Cortland County: A Presentation and Conversation” at noon in Room 203 of Main Street SUNY Cortland, located at 9 Main St. in downtown Cortland. His talk will focus on where Cortland County stands relative to other New York State counties in terms of inequality and opportunities for its citizens, especially young people.
The lunchtime series, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the SUNY Cortland Pathways to Opportunity Initiative group. The goal of the initiative is to bring together the area’s campus and community members to study the relationships between economic inequality, public policy, business opportunity, social mobility and civic engagement. Members discuss issues that include student loan debt, a livable hourly wage, and poverty.
Additional talks are slated for noon on select Tuesdays throughout the summer. Talks will continue to be scheduled monthly and updates will be provided.
