The CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR) is part of a CUNY-wide initiative, bringing together a core commitment from five campuses—Baruch College, the Graduate Center, Hunter College, Queens College, and the CUNY School of Public Health —and associated faculty affiliates from throughout the City University of New York. >>

Faculty & Staff

CIDR is comprised of affiliates from many of the 24 CUNY campuses. Building on the presence of more than 30 demographers CUNY-wide, the City University of New York hired nine new faculty members in the field during the past few years. >>

Demographic Research

With CUNY’s demography cluster initiative, the University has created the Institute, a home where scholars can gather to exchange ideas and receive the support necessary to accomplish the research agendas they establish. This engagement takes many forms, including cross-campus collaborations of faculty and students, development and support for new research and training initiatives, and a vibrant seminar series sponsored by the Institute. >>

Certificate Program in Demography

The Certificate Program in Demography is the first demographic training program in the New York metropolitan area. The CUNY Institute for Demographic Research serves as a focal point for this program. >>
