Tom Swiderski, University of North Carolina
sdI am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Public Policy at UNC Chapel Hill studying secondary and higher education in the US. I use quantitative methods to examine the effects of education programs and policies, especially those affecting the transition out of high school. I focus particularly on “college-prep” policies that require or encourage high school students to engage in college-level coursework and college-preparatory activity.

Hello! I’m a PhD student studying Public Policy at the University of Chicago. My research focuses on examining ways to reduce inequality and eliminate barriers to education; particularly for women, first-generation college students, and other historically disadvantaged groups. Currently, I am studying the effects of statewide higher education policies on the academic outcomes of community college students, as well as changes in gender and racial representation in children’s books over time.
