On student achievement, educational leadership, and closing the opportunity gap.
Public Scholar / Award-Winning Educator
Dr. Anindya Kundu
Hey! I’m Anindya Kundu and I’m a sociologist who loves thinking about how people can succeed despite various challenges. I am an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at Florida International University. I am invested in: Contexts in which youth thrive and learn best; urban education as a topic and lens to address the opportunity gap; cultural competency in educational spaces; mental health in higher education; race & inequality; agency & grit; and, social justice. My scholarship involves “agency.” I investigate how strivers, or racial minorities from low-income backgrounds, navigate social, cultural, institutional, and economic obstacles to beat the odds. I research the resources, tools, and environments that all students need to thrive. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
