The Cornell Population Center (CPC) is the intellectual hub for demographic research and training at Cornell University. CPC’s substantive areas of emphasis are in families and children, poverty and inequality, health behaviors and disparities, and immigration and diversity. CPC has distinctive strengths in areas that cross-cut these themes, including a focus on family processes, policy analysis, and translational research.
CPC is a university-wide center with over 150 faculty, postdoctoral, and student affiliates from departments and colleges across campus. It fosters collaboration and innovation in population science through cross-cutting training programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels; seminars and other events that increase the visibility of the population sciences at Cornell; and hands-on mentorship and administrative support for external grant-getting.
