Mark Chin

Assistant Professor, Department of Leadership, Policy, and Organizations

Mark Chin is an Assistant Professor of Education Policy and Inequality at Peabody College of Vanderbilt University. Dr. Chin studies school integration, school choice, racial bias in education, and how schools affect students' racial attitudes, prosocial behaviors, and equity-aligned sociopolitical preferences. His research is motivated by the belief that key to addressing persistent disparities in society is uncovering how schools might reduce negative outgroup prejudices, increase prosociality, and foster widespread commitment to advancing equity. Dr. Chin’s work has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as the American Educational Research Journal, the Economics of Education Review, Educational Researcher, the Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness and the Journal of Urban Economics. He received his PhD in Education from Harvard University in 2022.
