Stanford economist Raj Chetty will present a Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture at UC Riverside from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 1, in the UCR University Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

The percentage of children who earn more than their parents has decreased from 95 percent for children born in 1940 to 41 percent among children born in 1984. This decline in the American Dream drives the groundbreaking Equality of Opportunity Project led by Chetty and his colleagues. Relying on the power of “big data,” Chetty’s research aims to develop novel policy solutions that empower families and communities to reduce poverty and improve quality of life.

This lecture is cosponsored by the Office of the Chancellor, the UCR School of Public Policy, and the UCR Department of Economics. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and light refreshments will be available following the lecture. Complimentary parking will be available in Lot 6 starting at noon.

The lecture is free, but reservations are encouraged.
