Marcus T. Wright

Thank you for visiting my website. My professional life has almost entirely focused on education. I believe that education can open doors of opportunity for everyone, and everyone can succeed in education if given the necessary support and understanding. As an advisor of Sociology students and pre-majors at the University of Pennsylvania, I get to put this philosophy into practice. As a Doctoral student in Higher Education at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education,  I am committed to researching and learning how to contribute to educational equality in the 2- and 4-year sectors, and striving to help create opportunity for underrepresented populations such as first-generation students (like myself).

Please feel free to browse the website for more information about my current research on community college student transfer to selective universities, as well as my teaching and writing.
