About the Center

In the late 1990s, one of the key initiatives under UCR’s Vision 2010 plan was to unite the University more closely with the communities that surround the campus by initiating research that was relevant internationally and to UCR’s region.

Through its UCR affiliated faculty and outreach activities, the Center explores the social, economic, political and ecological questions posed by population growth and movement. The Center is involved in interdisciplinary collaborations in the community and among faculty and researchers, through research, joint conferences, workshops and public forums held at UCR and in the community.
