Spring Seminar Series 2019

WCPC's quarterly Seminar Series on Poverty and Public Policy brings nationally prominent poverty researchers to the university to present and discuss their findings with faculty and students. The seminars are open to the public and attract a range of faculty and students from disciplines across campus, as well as local service providers and engaged community members. Available as a for-credit course to graduate-level students, the seminar series also offers an opportunity for networking and career development, as students meet with poverty researchers throughout the quarter.
