Wendell E. Pritchett

Chancellor and Professor of Law and History. Chancellor Pritchett earned his B.A. in history at Brown University in 1986, his J.D. at Yale in 1991, and his Ph.D. in history from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997. Before coming to Rutgers, Chancellor Pritchett served as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where, as associate dean during 2006-08, he focused on faculty development and improving the quality of the experience for students. At Penn, he also was a member of the faculty of the graduate programs of the School of Design and the history department in the School of Arts and Sciences, and he led or participated in many universitywide initiatives. He was a founding member of the Penn Institute for Urban Research and was one of the principal investigators on a major federally funded project to examine racial disparities in the treatment of prostate cancer. Before coming to Penn, Chancellor Pritchett spent five years as an assistant professor of history at Baruch College of the City University of New York. He served as deputy chief of staff and director of policy for Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter in 2008, and chaired the Urban Policy Task Force for U.S. Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign during 2007. He is the author of the books: Brownsville, Brooklyn: Blacks, Jews, and the Changing Face of the Ghetto (University of Chicago Press, 2002), which explores race relations and public policy in 20th-century Brooklyn; and Robert Clifton Weaver and the American City: The Life and Times of an Urban Reformer (University of Chicago Press, 2008), a biography of the first African-American cabinet secretary, a leading thinker and practitioner of 20th-century urban development. He serves as president of the Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation; vice chair of the Redevelopment Authority of Philadelphia; co-chair of the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia's World Class Greater Philadelphia initiative; and on the board of the United Way of Camden County.
