Professor Jacob Hibel's Proposal Wins $350,000 Grant

UC Davis has been selected to receive one of three $350,000 grants to establish a Ph.D. pathways program via the University of California-Hispanic Serving Institutions Doctoral Diversity Initiative. The UC Davis program, Broadening Participation in Social Inequality Research, will establish partnerships with faculty and administration at 14 HSI-designated California State University campuses to expand and diversify the pool of social inequality scholars by pursuing four goals:

Goal 1: Increase the pathways to Ph.D. completion for students from HSI-designated California State University (CSU) campuses.

Goal 2: Expose, encourage, and help prepare students for research careers in academia and public policy.

Goal 3: Establish meaningful, sustainable collaborations among UC Davis social science faculty and faculty at our partner CSU campuses.

Goal 4: Enhance graduate program climate using interventions to foster a culture of inclusion and equity—especially for faculty and students from historically underrepresented communities.

Broadening Participation in Social Inequality Research will be housed within the UC Davis Center for Poverty & Inequality Research, and will be directed by Sociology faculty member Jacob Hibel.
