The IUPLR/JSRI Census Information Center (CIC) is a partnership between the U.S. Census Bureau, the Inter-University Program for Latino Research (IUPLR), and the Julian Samora Research Institute (JSRI). The goal of the IUPLR/JSRI CIC is to provide Latina/o and other underserved local communities information on Census Bureau data, reports and information on training and technical assistance opportunities. The objectives of the IUPLR/JSRI CIC are to: 1) disseminate information on Latina/o and other underserved communities; this occurs through the centers that are members of IUPLR. 2) provide information on technical assistance opportunities available at the U.S. Census Bureau; 3) support outreach, promotion and recruitment efforts associated with Census Bureau data collection; 4) review, evaluate, and provide feedback on Census Bureau products, programs, and services; 5) provide links to data and tools, and information from the U.S. Census Bureau; 6) and participate in Census Bureau sponsored training, webinars, virtual and annual conferences.
The IUPLR CIC partnership is overseen by Rubén Martínez, Director of the Julián Samora Research Institute at Michigan State University.
