Fridays at Newcomb is a free lunch and lecture series featuring speakers across disciplines. These events are open to the public. Please help us go green by bringing your own reusable water bottle and utensils.
Deondra Rose is Newcomb Institute's 2020 Salzer Lecturer; the annual Salzer Lecture focuses on women's experience in higher education.
Rose is an Assistant Professor at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy. Her research focuses on the feedback effects of landmark social policies on the American political landscape.  In addition to U.S. public/social policy, Rose's research and teaching interests include higher education policy, American political development (APD), political behavior, identity politics (e.g., gender, race, and socioeconomic status), and inequality.
She is the author of Citizens by Degree: Higher Education Policy and the Changing Gender Dynamics of American Citizenship (Oxford University Press, 2018), which examines the development of landmark U.S. higher education policies--including the National Defense Education Act of 1958, the Higher Education Act of 1965, and Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments--and their impact on the progress that women have made since the mid-twentieth century.
