Researchers found that sexual education led to improved health knowledge and decreased teen pregnancy rates in the following year.
The Stanford Center on Global Poverty and Development welcomes nominations from Center faculty affiliates for visitors from leading academic and research-oriented organizations for periods from one quarter to one year.
Visitors are provided with office space in the John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Building and have many opportunities for intellectual exchange with Center faculty affiliates and the broader Stanford research community.
During their stay, visitors will be able to participate in seminar series and workshops across campus and disseminate their work through the Center’s working paper series. They are also invited to engage with the policy and business communities during events held at the Center.
The time at the Center is intended to expand a visitor’s network of collaborators and mentors and to generate fresh and innovative research that can lead to real-world impacts on global poverty.
Visitors will have no teaching obligations, but will be requested to hold weekly office hours for students, publicized in advance, and to engage in their host department and in Center events.
Applications to the Visitors Program for the 2018-19 academic year will be reviewed beginning November 1, 2017. Please note that applications require a letter of nomination from a Center faculty affiliate.
