JFI Webinars bring outside scholars, policymakers, advocates, or JFI researchers together to discuss topics in higher education finance, guaranteed income, digital ethics, or other areas in the social sciences. Taking the form of a panel discussion or lecture, our webinars have wider audiences than our research sessions, and are geared towards general audiences. We also include here our Twitter Chats, panels of experts hosted in all-text form on Twitter.
