Governance and Structure

The Columbia Population Research Center is a semi-autonomous research unit within the University reporting to the Office of the Provost. Our governance structure was devised to bridge the two Columbia University campuses—the “downtown” Morningside Heights campus and the “uptown” Medical Center campus. CPRC members are drawn equally from both campuses; as such there are two co-directors, one from each campus, with shared and equal responsibility for CPRC administration and governance.
