Governing Committees

CSDE”s governance structure is composed of two administrative committees: The Executive Committee advises on center-wide planning and delivery of research services and the Training Committee oversees the Graduate Certificate and Fellowship programs.


The CSDE Demographic Methods program is overseen on a day-to-day basis by the Director of Training for CSDE, a faculty member appointed by the Director of CSDE, with support from the Assistant Director of Training. The program is overseen on a quarterly basis by the CSDE Training Committee, composed of faculty from across campus and CSDE staff most closely aligned with the training resources. The Training Committee conducts an annual review of Trainees, makes decisions regarding the distribution of resources, selects fellowship recipients, and reviews and approves all changes in the policies and procedures of the Training Program.
