Please join CEGA on Thursday, December 6 from 12:00-2:00 pm in Evans Hall 648 for a development seminar featuring our inaugural class of 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.
RSVP is encouraged but not required. Lunch will be provided.
