The Wilder School Doctoral Lecture Series in Public Policy gives students the opportunity to learn from and engage with leading scholars in a variety of fields related to public policy with a specific focus on race and social equity each year. This series, and conversations and ideas that challenge and inspire us to achieve a more just society, are more relevant and critically important than ever before.
Due to the current global health crisis, the Fall 2020 series was held in a virtual format. The lectures, which were free and open to the public, were conducted and recorded by Zoom.
