When growing up, Dr. Manuel Pastor’s teachers did not think a college education would ever be in his future. Dr. Pastor was raised in a southern Californian working class community where students of color were not thought of as college-ready or college-bound. However, through a series of interesting events, Dr. Pastor dispelled common misperceptions and excelled to become a nationally acclaimed academician and thought-leader. Dr. Pastor is dedicated to ensuring that a zip code or the color of one’s skin does not prevent access to gaining a higher education.
Dr. Manuel Pastor recently co-authored Just Growth: Inclusion and Prosperity in America’s Metropolitan Regions. He is the Professor of Sociology and American Studies & Ethnicity at the University of Southern California where he also serves as Director of the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity at USC’s Center for Sustainable Cities and Co-Director of USC’s Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration.
