Real World Perspectives on Poverty Solutions introduces key issues regarding the causes and consequences of poverty through a virtual lecture series featuring experts in policy and practice from across the nation, with the goal of encouraging the formation of a broad community of learners to engage in these issues together.
Speakers are national and global experts drawn from university, business, and community contexts who explore interdisciplinary real-world poverty solutions from a wide variety of perspectives. The virtual talks, which are free and open to the public, will be livestreamed on YouTube with the opportunity for Q&A. U-M students can participate in the series as a one-credit course.
