Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology

Over the last two years CSDE has sponsored and supported several working groups comprised of faculty and advanced graduate students from across campus.  These working groups provide opportunities for smaller groups of scholars to share their research in progress, garner thoughtful and detailed feedback on papers or grants, brainstorm new projects, and discuss the latest published research related to their working group.
