The Center provides many opportunities to graduate students, from
mentoring on research and career objectives, to courses,
conferences, our annual graduate student retreat, as well as
opportunities in our visiting graduate student scholar program.
Description: This interdisciplinary course will
provide background on poverty statistics, theories and evidence
on the causes and consequences of poverty, and the history and
efficacy of major anti-poverty programs in the United States.
The Center for Poverty Research at UC Davis seeks applications
from graduate students who are interested in visiting the
Center in order to expand their understanding of the causes and
consequences of poverty.
From September 23-25, 2012, the Center hosted a graduate student
retreat attended by eight faculty and 25 students engaged in
poverty research from a variety of disciplines. With Lake Tahoe
as a backdrop, faculty provided advice and workshops on grad
school success and the career market, while eight students gave
presentations on their dissertation work to a crowd of
enthusiastic and supportive colleagues. The retreat was a
wonderful beginning to a new year!
