proFcast: Scholar Activism

This proFcast, our second episode, features a discussion between proFmagazine's Founding Editor and Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, professor of higher education policy and sociology at Temple University. Sara is a scholar-activist who conducts research on the cost of higher education. Through her work she demonstrates how colleges and universities can and should make education more affordable and, therefore, more accessible to students. In this discussion, Sara and Suzette share their respective interests in scholarly work that facilitates change. Ultimately, Sara suggests, “hope is a strategy” that will lead to more affordable and accessible higher education, as well as a strategy that will help you achieve your goals and affect the change you seek, no matter what issue motivates you. You just have to believe in your work and use your voice.
