Patrick Denice, Assistant Professor
PhD, Sociology, University of Washington
Patrick Denice is a sociologist who studies inequality in education and in the workplace. He has published on demographic distribution of COVID-19, union and non-union pay, race and gender in schooling, and stratification in higher education. His recent work looks at the potential of school choice policies to attenuate or exacerbate patterns of inequality and segregation in urban public education systems. Dr. Denice's current projects examine non-traditional pathways to and through postsecondary education, and how workplace institutions and policies shape workers' wages.
