About the Speaker

Kimberly Goyette became director of the Center for Vietnamese Philosophy, Culture, and Society at Temple University in 2011, after being acting director the previous year. Kim is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology at Temple University. Her areas of specialization include education, race and ethnicity, stratification, immigration, and demography.  Her recent work, published in Social Science Research and Social Problems, has focused on whether social background and occupational expectations account for rising college expectations over time, and how people's perceptions of their local schools vary by their changing racial composition.  Other work in Comparative Education Review looks at how attendance at non-public universities in Vietnam varies by socioeconomic and other family characteristics.  A recent book, titled Education and Immigration, was published in 2013 from Policy Press.  Goyette has served as a reviewer for numerous sociology and education journals. She is on the editorial board of Sociology of Education, and is on the council for the Sociology of Education section of the American Sociological Association.
