A presentation from 2021–2022 Carol K. Pforzheimer Professor Sandra Susan Smith

Sandra Susan Smith is the Carol K. Pforzheimer Professor at Harvard Radcliffe Institute and the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Professor of Criminal Justice and faculty director of the Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management at Harvard Kennedy School.

Smith’s areas of interest include urban poverty and joblessness, social capital and social networks, and, more recently, the front end of criminal case processing, with a particular interest in the consequences of pretrial detention and diversion. In each of these areas, racial inequality and its root causes are core areas of concern.
