## Three- to Five-Day Workshops

Unless otherwise indicated, workshops are held in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the University of Michigan campus. Workshops usually meet daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

**Note: We are still creating our full schedule of short workshops, so be sure to check back frequently for updated information on the course list, dates, and locations.**

**Note:** The ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research makes every effort to provide an up-to-date course schedule, as well as fully accurate course descriptions. Occasionally, however, unforeseen circumstances may require changes in course content, instructors, timing, or location. Fortunately, such events are rare. But when they do occur, we reserve the right to make any changes that are necessary to maintain the Program. We will post corrected information to the Summer Program website and inform participants who are affected by such changes as quickly as possible.
