Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology


CSDE’s governance structure is composed of three administrative committees: The Executive Committee advises on center-wide planning and delivery of research services, the Training Committee oversees the Graduate Certificate and Fellowship programs, and the Events Committee coordinates the seminar and other outreach activities.




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.
