Population Studies Training Program Director and Mentors

The Population Studies Training Program is led by Dr. Ann Meier, who is MPC’s Training Director and Professor of Sociology. The program’s faculty mentors—an outstanding team of 37 faculty mentors from 8 colleges and 9 disciplinary departments—engage trainees with integrative, groundbreaking research and provide purposeful professional socialization. MPC Population Studies Trainees typically have two mentors, one in their disciplinary home and one in another field that aligns with their research interests.
