Advisory Board

The MPC Advisory Board is responsible for approving new members of the Center, nominating new directors, amending the MPC By-Laws, and providing advice to the Director on all aspects of MPC management. The Advisory Board consists of twelve Members elected by the MPC membership. Advisory Board Representatives must be members of the Center. There are three categories of Representatives, each of which is elected by a different group of MPC members. The three member groups are: (1) MPC faculty and P&A members who are not primarily employed by the Center; (2) IPUMS research staff; and (3) graduate student and postdoctoral members.
