Cornell Population Center Cornell Population Center Cornell Population Center

The Cornell Population Center (CPC) serves as the intellectual hub for demographic research and training at Cornell University. The CPC supports demographic research relating broadly to four core themes: (1) families and children; (2) health behaviors and disparities; (3) poverty and inequality; and (4) immigration and diversity. The CPC is a university-wide program serving 110 affiliates from 24 different departments and is housed in the College of Human Ecology. Daniel T. Lichter is CPC Director. Erin Oates is CPC Program Administrator.

Research Topic The CPC is honored to receive Atlantic Philanthropies' generous endowment to fund post-doctoral fellows in honor of former Cornell president, Frank H. T. Rhodes. April Sutton is the most recent Frank H.T. Rhodes Post-doctoral Fellow. She has a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Texas-Austin (2015). Broadly, her research areas of interest are education, social stratification and mobility, and life course transitions. The underlying objective of her work across these core areas is to investigate the circumstances under which schools and communities widen or narrow educational and labor force inequalities. She focuses on racial/ethnic, gender, and spatial dimensions of inequality during critical life transitions from adolescence through early adulthood. She is currently working on projects in collaboration with Kim Weeden while in residence.
