August 17, 2022
At the UC Davis Center for Poverty and Inequality Research, we conduct, support, promote and disseminate cutting-edge academic research related to what we regard as two of the most pressing and urgent issues facing the United States today: poverty and inequality.
Our research affiliates work across a broad range of disciplines, ranging from economics to psychology, from education to sociology, from law to human ecology, and beyond. These scholars approach the questions of poverty and inequality from a variety of angles, seeking new approaches to our core themes: labor markets, immigration, children and intergenerational transmission, and the non-traditional safety net.
Promoting the work of these professors is central to our mission. So, too, is supporting and training the next generation of poverty and inequality scholars—whether they be undergraduates just beginning to explore these issues, or PhD candidates conducting their own ground-breaking research.
