At The Morrison Institute for Population and Resource Studies, I want to further explore both the economic and social consequences of this potential change.

should "The" be capitalized or should "the" be all lowercase? thanks! and if possible, can you provide an explanation why?

I believe it should be lowercase!
It would be uppercase if "the" was part of the actual name, but as you can see on the website (morrisoninstitute.asu.edu), it is not.

Good luck on your college pursuits!

This is an interesting question that comes up for all of us at times. The first example I think of is the United Nations. I am pretty sure I do not need to capitalize "The." It is actually called the United Nations Organization (UNO), but that still does not help me figure out whether to capitalize "the." I am pretty sure I do not have to capitalize it, though.

Language is not perfect. :-)

the use of THE

Apenin stretched ... north to ... west of England.
Is the article"the" put instead of full stops?
My answer is no! What about yours? That's confusing.

North to THE west of England

I am not sure with first part of this sentence

The sentence could be saying that it stretched to the northwest of England, or north to west of England.

If I understand the sentence correctly, "North to the west of England" would work perfectly well.

So "Apenin stretched to the northwest of England" or "Apenin stretched to the north, west of England" are my two suggestions depending on your intended meaning.
