Meet the New IRP Affiliate Seminar Series

At the heart of IRP lies the poverty research of our campus-wide and national network of research affiliates and staff researchers. IRP affiliates maintain a substantial connection to the research, mentoring, and dissemination activities of the Institute. The Meet the New IRP Affiliate seminar series provides an opportunity for poverty researchers who recently joined the ranks of IRP affiliates to introduce themselves and their research interests to the community and to present some of their recent work.

Thursdays, 12:15-1:30 p.m., 8417 Social Science Building (unless otherwise noted)
