Genie Sullivan : Strauss Scholarship

Genie Sullivan (’25, Sociology) is interested in studying how the class structure influences the reorganization of economic, cultural, and political institutions based on implementing new digital technologies. They plan to pursue a PhD in Sociology to teach at a public university or community college. Outside of research, Genie is very active in the Poor People’s Campaign and the Wood Street Commons, which seek to end poverty and homelessness by organizing the most impacted people. They will use the Donald A. Strauss Foundation Scholarship to collaboratively work with other organizers to build up poor and houseless leaders in the East Bay.
