CCPR 20th Aniversary


The California Center for Population Research (CCPR) at UCLA was founded in 1998, and thus celebrates its 20-year anniversary in 2018! UCLA will host a CCPR anniversary event, with a reception on Thursday October 11, 2018 and a full day conference and dinner on Friday October 12, 2018. More details about the event to follow. We hope that you will be able to join us in this celebration!
