#RealCollege: national convening on college food and housing insecurity

Posted by University of Wisconsin on July 31, 2017

Join the Wisconsin HOPE Lab to learn from leaders working to reduce food and housing insecurity, ending no-cause evictions, putting homeless student liaisons on all college campuses, offering rent-free housing, broadening student access to food stamps, and ensuring that every college makes effective and just use of its food resources.

The Second #RealCollege
A national convening on college food and housing insecurity
October 23 and 24, 2017
Temple University in Philadelphia

We will learn about strategies for effective advocacy and how best to work with college administrators and policymakers to implement changes. In day-long workshops, we will also dig deep into key topics like how to operate effective campus food pantries or craft supportive state policies.

We are thrilled to feature a keynote by John King, former U.S. Secretary of Education and current President & CEO of Education Trust. We greatly admire his leadership on efforts to address youth homelessness in education and look forward to his thoughts on the agenda moving forward.
