"Mr. Ross received a B.A. from the University of Michigan in 1963, and an M.A. and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1966 and 1975, respectively. He has been at Clark since 1972.

He is affiliated with the programs in Peace Studies, Urban Development and Social Change, Ethics and Public Policy, and Race and Ethnic Relations.

"Since the 1980s, Mr. Ross has worked on the political economy of urban development and the analysis of global capitalism. He still does occasional work on the social movements of the 1960s, and is frequently interviewed about his role in those movements. Ross has worked as a speechwriter and policy advisor, and he writes occasional commentary for magazines. In 1995, he began research on the resurgence of sweatshops in the U.S. and global apparel industry, and he has given over 100 public lectures on the issue." [1]
