News and Events: June 2018
As summer approaches we are excited to share with you some new research and a preview of our plans for the fall. Save the date for our Fall Conference on Poverty, Segregation and Locality, which will take place November 16-17.
Our fall seminar series will feature talks by Jennifer Doleac of Texas A & M University, Analisa Packham of Miami University, and other invited scholars and researchers, so stay tuned.
We’ll introduce our new Poverty Facts series this fall. Poverty Facts will provide key background information for understanding research and policies affecting poverty, authored by faculty and graduate student affiliates of CPR. If you’d like to suggest a topic of interest for a future Poverty Facts brief, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below, you’ll find our latest podcast on the role of career and technical education (CTE) programs in improving earnings for low-wage workers and a recently published policy brief by CPR faculty affiliates Caitlin Patler and Erin Hamilton and graduate student Robin Savinar. The brief addresses an important and timely issue, the impact of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy on the psychological wellbeing of young immigrants who were granted temporary legal status under the program.
We wish you a pleasant summer.
