Teaching Poverty 101 Workshop

Posted: 11/25/2019 (Conference)

The Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) is accepting applications for the 2020 Teaching Poverty 101 Workshop, which is designed to help college instructors plan courses on the causes, consequences, and policy responses to poverty. The workshop is open to college faculty and instructors in any postsecondary institution—university, college, or community college. Applicants need not have prior experience in poverty studies, but should plan to include material from the workshop in future courses.

The workshop will be held on the UW–Madison campus from Tuesday, June 2, through Friday, June 5, 2020. Invited participants will be expected to attend the entire program.

Space is limited. Applications must be submitted by January 12, 2020, to receive priority. We anticipate notifying all applicants of their application status by March 2, 2020.

To apply for the workshop, please prepare a brief (up to 800 words) statement detailing your background, interest in teaching a poverty-related course, information about poverty-related courses you currently teach or plan to teach, and what you hope to learn in the workshop. Upload this statement and a current CV as a single PDF file to the application form.
