Dorothy Roberts: Bringing Different Perspectives into the Classroom

Dorothy Roberts: Bringing Different Perspectives into the Classroom
Dorothy Roberts is the George A. Weiss Professor of Law & Sociology and the Raymond Pace & Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Professor of Civil Rights.
Students know that Dorothy Roberts’ classes will stimulate engrossing discussions and require them to consider complex issues from a range of various perspectives. Her expertise in both sociology and law brings unique insights into the classroom, and her practice of drawing from both of these disciplines to understand the perpetuation of social inequities has changed national conversations and inspired much-needed social change. In this video, Roberts tells why bringing students from schools across the University into class together is such a game-changer, and how her life-long commitment to integrating knowledge across the disciplines is nurtured by Penn’s institutional commitment to interdisciplinary work at all levels.
