Two students will discuss work experiences at a brown-bag lunch get-together Wednesday at 12:20 p.m. in the La Follette conference room.
Andrew Trembley will give a short talk about what has learned about how the World Bank works. As a consultant for the Education Team at the World Bank, Trembley works on the Systems Assessment & Benchmarking for Education Results project. "I've been working on this enormous push for data collection regarding education systems in developing countries," says Trembley, who graduates in December with master's degrees in international public affairs and in agricultural and applied economics. "Anybody interested in education or how the World Bank decides what policies it should study or promote would probably find it interesting."
Senay Goitom will describe his project assistantship with professor Andrew Reschovsky. "I'll be discussing a project that identifies predictors of different revenue levels local health departments receive from federal grants, local revenues, fees for service, donations and private grants," says Goitom, a Master of Public Affairs student." The motivation for the project is helping local health departments cope with what could be a prolonged period of tight budgets."
