Research & Reports

TIP has entered into a unique partnership with the Rutgers-Newark American Studies program by working directly with a doctoral student, Erin Santana. Santana is leading an important TIP study about the impact of racial integration in New Jersey public schools. She is conducting oral histories to document the experiences of people who attended high schools in Montclair, South Orange-Maplewood, and Bloomfield in Essex County during the late 1990s through 2010. She seeks to understand how integration may have influenced their experiences while in school and after graduation.
