Demography Club

The Demography Club is the Demography Ph.D. Students' Association at Penn and serves as a facilitator between students, postdocs, visitors, and PSC faculty. The Demography Club aims to create opportunities for greater integration between students in the Ph.D. program, postdocs and visitors, faculty members and alumni. In addition, the Demography Club fosters interdepartmental collaboration through the organization of social and academic events throughout the year.

Events organized by the Demography Club include: Fall Student Welcome Party, Demography Ultimate Frisbee Team, Demography Interdisciplinary Student Research Seminar Series, Lunch with a Professor, Faculty Speed Dating, Paper Workshops, Prospective Students' Happy Hour, Summer Research/Internship, and Funding Information Session and student presentations on methods and modeling.

The Demography Club is run by one or two students each year.
