New Faculty Profile - Updated January 2022

Welcome to new faculty member Chinyere Agbai!


Chinyere Agbai


We are excited to announce that Chinyere Agbai (Brown University) has accepted a position as Assistant Professor of Sociology at Ohio State. Chinyere’s research is concerned with the linkages between urban inequality, the racial wealth gap, public policy, the welfare state, structural racism, and the social determinants of health. Her dissertation explores the historical roots of the contemporary racial wealth gap through the lens of one of the largest housing policies in American history: the GI Bill of 1944. We can’t wait for Chinyere to join our department in Autumn 2022.
