The Evans School has stepped up events this year hosting numerous policy impact lectures, community based events, and our Research Seminar Series. We want our events to be more accesible to the public and we've decided to record our events either through video, invitation of the media, or audio podcasts. 

We saw events focused on immigration, poverty, gentrification, feminism, technology for global good, and more. We also launched our first Facebook Live event that was viewed by hundreds live and thousands after the fact. Our Research Seminar Series explored topics from food pantries to municipal bond capital, crime & punishment to early childhood intervention.
