Connect with the Poverty Initiative


Location: 215/216 McKenna Hall (View on map )

Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, Connections Series events are specially designed for faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdocs to strengthen our sense of community, highlight the work of interdisciplinary institutes, centers, and other academic units, and build a culture of scholarly connection across disciplines, colleges, and schools.

During the spring 2024 semester, the the Connections Series will focus on the new Strategic Framework and highlight the three University-wide initiatives launched this past fall: Poverty, Ethics, and Democracy. Each event will include a short program featuring the directors of the Initiative and include the opportunity for Q&A as well as for fellowship and conversation with your colleagues. Drinks and food will be served. In order to plan accordingly, we ask that you please RSVP for these events.
