Celebrating 75 Years of Research

A Joint Anniversary Symposium

NORC, in partnership with the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and the Division of Social Sciences, is proud to present a joint demography symposium in celebration of NORC’s 75th anniversary and the University of Chicago’s 125th anniversary.

The afternoon’s sessions will highlight the many ways NORC’s long tradition of rigorous, transparent, and objective research has been fostered and reinforced by our long-standing relationship with the University of Chicago.   

The symposium will bring together NORC and University of Chicago researchers who have undertaken some of the most important social science research studies over the past 75 years. Participants will also discuss how that tradition continues today, as NORC and the University of Chicago continue to innovate to meet the emerging research challenges of the 21st century.
