Bass Connections: Higher Education & the Cost of Opportunity

Bass Connections brings together Duke faculty and students to explore real-world issues in interdisciplinary research teams.

This project team will work collaboratively with faculty, graduate students and undergraduates at the Multidisciplinary Institute of the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro in Novo Iguaçu, a county of 829,000 people in the Baixada region on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, to understand social mobility as it relates to higher education in the region.
