The CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR) is part of a CUNY-wide initiative, bringing together a core commitment from four campuses—Baruch College, the Graduate Center, Hunter College, and Queens College—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. >>
