The Clinton School of Public Service hosted the inaugural Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty Symposia on Aug. 8, 2012. The event brought together students, faculty and staff from Consortium member institutions to share best practices on teaching poverty studies and to learn from key experts on poverty in the national arena.
The symposium followed the Frueauff Closing Conference for the Shepherd Alliance (Aug. 7), which provided interns the opportunity to report on their experiences and to begin assessing how that experience will play into their future efforts to diminish poverty.
