Annual Conference

2024 SHECP Annual Conference

July 26th – 27th at Georgia State University

The SHECP Annual Conference is designed to place the interns' individual experiences into broader anti-poverty policy, research, and organizational efforts and to situate it within their undergraduate education. The conference also provides professional development opportunities for the staff and faculty of member institutions and community partners who are able to attend. 

 

While SHECP provides funding for all interns and for a representative from each Member School to participate in the Annual Conference, the conference is open to the larger community. For individuals not part of a Member School, registration information will be available in June. The 2024 SHECP Annual Conference is made possible by the generous support of the Charles A. Frueauff Foundation.
