Dominic Terrel Walker

Dominic Terrel Walker is the elected Chair of the Student Workers of Columbia-UAW 2710 and a PhD candidate in Sociology. His dissertation investigates transitional school programs: non-profit organizations that recruit poor and working-class youth of color and prepare them to transition from mostly public schools in urban communities to elite, private schools. He specifically examines the cultural politics involved in moving youth of color across boundaries of race, class, and space for upward social mobility.
