Our Center was founded in 2011 as one of three federally designated Poverty Research Centers. As our Center has grown over the past nine years, so too has our research agenda, expanding beyond a strict focus on poverty to include overlapping dimensions of social and economic inequality. Today, Center affiliates’ research contributes to our understanding of the causes and consequences of, and solutions to, economic disadvantage as it relates to race and ethnicity, geospatial context, gender, immigrant status, and disability. To more completely capture the breadth of this research, we are pleased to announce our new name: The UC Davis Center for Poverty & Inequality Research.
We invite you to explore our website, participate in our upcoming events, follow us on Twitter, and learn more about our affiliates and their important research on pressing issues of poverty and social inequality.
