Short Bio

Dr. Carol Ann MacGregor joins the department of Sociology at Loyola after recently finishing her Ph.D at Princeton University. Her dissertation research, which she will be turning into a book manuscript, looks at the causes and consequences of the closing of Catholic schools (K-12) in the United States. More generally, Dr. MacGregor's research focuses on three important social institutions that shape many individuals' lives: schools, religious organizations, and voluntary associations. Her work has been published in the American Sociological Review, Social Science Research, Research in the Sociology of Work, Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion and Poetics.
