Jordan Starck enrolled as a graduate student in Princeton’s Psychology department in 2016. In pursuit of his joint PhD in Psychology & Social Policy, he is currently working to complete his dissertation, titled Perpetuating Inequality in Pursuit of Diversity.  His dissertation work experimentally contrasts how effective moral and instrumental approaches to diversity are for bringing about racially equitable outcomes within organizations. More broadly, Jordan studies race, bias, and interventions for social change, often within the context of education.  Before arriving at Princeton, he received his BS in Psychology and Professional Educator’s License from Davidson College, after which he spent four years as a K-12 educator where he taught a variety of social studies courses and directed mentoring programs.  He also consulted with other educators, officers, and non-profits on topics related to bias and conducted research to help improve programs targeted at empowering underrepresented groups.
