Formal Bio:

My name is Norbert Negrea, currently the Research and Policy Analyst for the Campaign for College Opportunity at the Los Angeles office. I hold an M.A. in the Social Sciences with a focus on Demographic and Social Analysis. For the last five years, I have studied social inequalities specifically in immigrant, refugee, and impacted communities in respect to their access to education and social services. My research has also framed social inequalities through a policy lens, offering recommendations to assist in the solutions to these social inequalities. I am also a proud first generation college student, and son of refugees from Eastern Europe.
