About Us

CU Population CenterCU Population Center (CUPC) is a community of scholars and professionals engaged in population and demographic research and training across the University of Colorado. Based at the Institute of Behavioral Science at CU Boulder, CUPC brings together researchers across three University of Colorado campuses and the broader Rocky Mountain West. CUPC provides administrative, technical, and development support to its affiliates and fosters intellectual community and engagement to advance population and demographic research. CUPC is funded in part by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) as a Population Dynamics Research Center.

The three main goals of CUPC are to:

  • Accelerate population science that matters
  • Fuel innovation in population science
  • Support junior researchers doing population science
