Central Florida

The Central Florida SSN chapter launched in 2017 with the goal of building more robust linkages between local academics, community leaders, policy makers, and the media. Our members are particularly interested in immigration policy, environmental policy, health care, poverty, and current trends in race and ethnic inequality.
