CSS Staff Feature: Rochelle Sims

Research intern Rochelle Sims discusses her passion for social justice and her work on the center’s future of work initiative.

Case Study: Slavery at American Universities

We examine the troubling relationship of slavery in American universities and the ways in which universities are trying to address this history of oppression.

The Center for Social Solutions (CSS) fosters research and collaborations that diagnose and solve critical social problems. We believe these solutions rely on diverse perspectives that account for the multi-faceted root causes of these issues. Our four founding initiatives—diversity, slavery, water access, and the future of work—approach different aspects of the equality that we believe is necessary to advance as a prosperous democratic society.
