Hello!Photo of Gina Spitz

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Loyola University Chicago’s Center for Urban Research and Learning aka CURL, where I participate in collaborative community action research projects. I also teach classes in Loyola’s Sociology department.

I received my PhD in Sociology in 2015 from the University of Wisconsin, Madison – the nation’s top-ranked Sociology department according to US News & World Report.

My dissertation focused on race relations, urban neighborhoods, and racial inequality. I currently work in the Applied Sociology realm on policy-relevant research on poverty and urban inequality and on program evaluations.
