The CA Regional Student Conference was held on April 9th - 10th, 2017 at California Regional Student Conference, Riverside, CA. During this conference, students presented research across a wide variety of policy areas, through poster sessions and on conference panels with their peers.

Participating students gained valuable research presentation experience, as well as received important feedback from academics, practitioners, and other students. Students had several opportunities to network and make connections with a diverse group of policy professionals, as well as other policy students. Attendees at the California Regional Student Conference saw 26 panels, 94 student panel presenters, and 16 poster presentations.
