As a Nebraska student, you have the opportunity to work with one of our several active research centers that provide research and work opportunities for our undergraduate and graduate students.
Under the leadership of Dr. Eric Thompson, the Bureau attracts substantial grant funding that
supports a broad range of policy oriented and scholarly research. Faculty members take the
lead on projects, but graduate students form the core component of the teams. This approach
provides the students essential training in the conduct of applied and scholarly research.
Upper division students typically work on projects and grants that are likely to result in
scholarly publications. This has resulted in numerous reports and articles co-authored with graduate students.

For graduate students, the RDC will offer direct funding opportunities as research assistants
to work with faculty in various disciplines on research projects and to assist in supervision
of research conducted at the center under the direction of the Census Administrator.
Additionally graduate students will have unique opportunities to access detailed longitudinal
and other data for their own research and to participate in funded research projects generated
by ongoing grants associated with the RDC.
