The “War on Poverty” was launched fifty years ago this January,
2014. To mark this event, the Center for Poverty Research
will be holding a conference from Thursday, January 9 – Friday,
January 10th, 2014 on the UC Davis Campus.
The Center hosts a graduate student retreat attended by faculty
and students engaged in poverty research from a variety of
disciplines. Faculty provide advice and workshops on grad school
success and the career market, while students give
presentations on their dissertation work to a crowd of
enthusiastic and supportive colleagues.
Students from Economics, Education, Human Development, Law,
Nutrition, Psychology, and Sociology are nominated by our
research affiliates to participate.
