CUPC services are divided into five cores areas designed to support the research of affiliates and the dissemination of research findings. Each core is described briefly below. Key services available to faculty are editing services, library services, secure data facilities, and statistical workshops. CUPC also offers development grants to CUPC affiliates.
Judith McCabe is the new Grants Coordinator for CUPC. Beginning in October, she will assist with both pre and post-award tasks such as budgets, submissions, and reports. Judith will act as the liaison with the CU Boulder Office of Contracts and Grants and with the campus Human Research Committee.
Rajshree Shrestha also provides central administrative support services for CUPC. She will assist Judith McCabe with grant submissions, assist faculty with financial reports, including travel reimbursements. She also supervises undergraduate workers available to help with CUPC administrative and research related tasks.
The Administrative Core (Director, Fred Pampel) provides crucial services to all affiliates, including secretarial, bibliographic, and grants management support for research projects.
The Information Core (Associate Director, Lori Hunter) broadens access to information for affiliates, increases awareness of center activities, and disseminate research findings.
The Developmental Core (Associate Director, Richard Rogers) provides crucial developmental seed awards to allow researchers - particularly junior affiliates - to move into new research areas and complete preliminary studies needed for funding of larger projects.
The Statistics and Computing Core (Associate Director, Jason Boardman) creates a computing and technology environment necessary for handling large and complex data sets and coordinates the use of affiliate expertise for statistical training and consultation.
The Public Infrastructure Core (Lori Hunter and Population Reference Bureau) collaborates to disseminate research of population centers across the country to the public.
