Van C. Tran on The Thought Project - Episode 74



Graduate Center, CUNY Professor Van C. Tran (Sociology), a former refugee and a graduate of Hostos Community College, Hunter College, and Harvard, talks about the joy of returning to CUNY and fulfilling one of his dreams: to teach at The Graduate Center. He revels in his research of immigrant-rich New York City, where he has explored the experiences of second-generation Latinos. Another area of scholarly interest is Asian immigrants in the U.S. and their beliefs about affirmative action. Tran talks about CUNY’s commitment to public scholarship and what that means to him.
