Eaton and Students Achieve Winning Placement in Data Visualization Contest

December 9, 2020

Sociology Professor Charlie Eaton and three graduate students recently submitted a winning entry in the Dignity and Debt Student Loan Data Visualization Contest. The contest, conducted through Princeton University’s VizE Lab, was created to pursue the potential in visualization in helping to solve the student loan debt crisis. The lab teamed up with the Dignity+Debt Network to call for data visualizations, maps, or short documentary films and photography that portray student loan debt. Eaton worked with graduate students Jay Colond, Luis Ruben Gonzalez, and Waleed Rajabally to produce the winning piece titled “Student Debt and the Hidden Racial Wealth Gap in Federal Aid Formulas”, which can be viewed here.
