Saturday Scholars: The Power of Evidence - Transforming the Fight against Poverty through Research
You are invited to experience an intimate discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty speakers on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times. Each lecture and Q&A is presented on a "home game" Saturday.
“The Power of Evidence: Transforming the Fight against Poverty through Research” is presented by William Evans, Keough-Hesburgh Professor of Economics and James Sullivan, Rev. Thomas J. McDonagh, C.S.C., Associate Professor of Economics. They are co-founders for the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities.
Come and hear how the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO) is answering Fr. Sorin’s challenge to be a “powerful force for good” by using economic research and evaluation to reduce poverty and improve lives through evidence-based programs and policies.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
