Fellows Showcase Public Policy Research at Diversity Conference  

On April 4, 2014, IPCE Urban Public Policy Fellowship (UPPF) Program Fellows presented their research posters during the research plenary at the IALHEA Annual Diversity Dialogue & Research Forum at UIC. The goals of the research forum are to increase faculty and student research collaborations; facilitate mentor relationships between faculty and students of color; and to increase the persistence of African American, Latino, and other underrepresented students in academia and enhance their research.

UPPF Fellows' research projects stem from hands-on internship experiences and focus on policy-related topics as part of the UPPF program, a leadership development program designed to expose historically underrepresented minority undergraduate students at UIC to key public policy issues.

Visit the UPPF page on our website to check out program highlights, samples of Fellows' research posters, and photos of their work over the last year. If you have any questions or would like more information about the UPPF program, please contact Catalina Nava at (312) 355-0154. Also, follow UPPF on Facebook: UIC UPPF.
