Professor Christina Greer Named NYU’s 2018 McSilver Fellow

The McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work has announced that Christina M. Greer, Ph.D., associate professor of political science, will be the 2018 McSilver Fellow in Residence.

“As McSilver seeks to broaden the conversation about such important issues as inequality, social and racial justice, having such a renowned scholar such as Dr. Greer at McSilver is an exciting opportunity to enhance the dialogue regarding the root causes of poverty and to explore policy solutions, both locally and nationally,” said Michael A. Lindsey, Ph.D., director of the institute.

The institute cited Greer’s research “concerning the impact of racial identity as it pertains to policy choices and preferences for black populations” as one of the reasons for awarding her the fellowship. For her part, Greer said she looks forward to participating in “a holistic conversation about poverty, policy, and politics” with Lindsey and his team.

“I am beyond excited to join the McSilver Institute,” said Greer.

“I am humbled to be a part of this conversation as Michael and the McSilver Institute move forward with even more important and necessary projects in this current political climate.”
