Greenberg Invited as Member of 2019 Class of Annie E. Casey Foundation Rural Poverty Research Fellows

GreenbergPierce Greenberg, assistant professor in the Department of Cultural and Social Studies, has been invited to be a member of the 2019 class of Annie E. Casey Foundation Rural Poverty Research Fellows, a program organized by the Rural Policy Research Institute at the University of Iowa. The class features 12 early-career assistant professors and PhD candidates from across the country. Creighton University is the only AJCU institution represented on the list.

As a Fellow, Greenberg will have the opportunity to get to know rural poverty researchers from other disciplines, share the unique rural challenges faced in poverty research and policy/practice, and explore new approaches to rural poverty research. He will also interact with a select group of senior researchers and policy/program practitioners who appreciate evidence-based approaches to help design a comprehensive, policy-informed, multi-disciplinary agenda for social science research on rural poverty for the coming decade.
