Visiting Scholar Development Lunch 2013

Description

Please join CEGA for two seminars featuring our BRAC and EASST visiting scholars. Over the fall semester, the CEGA scholars have been designing impact evaluation studies alongside CEGA faculty and graduate students, and learning from the Berkeley community as a whole. We hope you will take this opportunity to learn about the valuable research that is being conducted at their home institutions, directly from the scholars.  For more information about the scholars' background and research interests, please visit our webpage.

RSVP is not required. Lunch will be provided.
