Rebecca Shamash
Quarterly Adjunct Lecturer

Rebecca Shamash received her Ph.D. in Education from the University of Minnesota. Her most recent research project investigated how ethical issues are taken up in elite business schools in the United States and the mechanisms through which those institutions reproduce cultural and economic inequalities. Her other research interests include elite cultures, wealth and poverty, work and identity, and the ways that organizations and institutions shape society and inequality. In addition to teaching at Santa Clara, Rebecca holds a research fellowship at Stanford’s Center for Philanthropy and Civil Society.
