Your Investment in the Population Studies Center
The Michigan Population Studies Center has a rich history as an interdisciplinary community of scholars in population research and training. For over 50 years, we have been a leader in collecting data for population research and in creating new data collection and analysis methods. Our faculty and students conduct research in every region of the world.
We believe that PSC is the finest population studies center in the country. Because of this well-earned reputation, we attract and train the highest quality graduate and postdoctoral students.
Gifts from our alumni and friends make it possible to inspire young researchers to explore new countries and new areas of study. Opportunities afforded by these gifts help shape the next generation – and the most international generation – of demographers.
We make two promises to our donors: we will be responsible stewards of every gift, and we will strive to remain deserving of the confidence and generosity reflected in the investment.
