Our spring What Matters to Me & Why program kicks off with Assistant Professor of Sociology, Jody Vallejo.  Join us for an interesting talk and a free lunch!

Professor Vallejo specializes in immigration, immigrant integration, race/ethnicity, and Latinos.  Her book Barrios to Burbs: the Making of the Mexican-American Middle Class (Stanford University Press) examines patterns of mobility and socioeconomic incorporation among the Mexican-origin middle class in Southern California.  Her newest project is a study of middle-class and professional Latino entrepreneurs in Los Angeles.  Previously, she served as Visiting Research Fellow at the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies at the University of California, San Diego.
