The Center for Poverty Research facilitates research using a diverse set of approaches across academic disciplines to answer critical questions about poverty and its solutions. The Center engages faculty research affiliates in the departments of Economics, Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, Agricultural Economics, Human and Community Development, Chicano Studies, and the Schools of Education, Engineering and Law.
The Center was established in 2011 with core funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as one of three federally designated Poverty Research Centers whose mission is to facilitate non-partisan academic research in the United States.
The Center is located at UC Davis and is led by a director, deputy director, and executive committee consisting of UC Davis faculty, along with a national advisory board consisting of nationally known poverty scholars. Three staff positions support the Center, a manager, a program assistant and a senior writer.
