Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
From the Director
Welcome to the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research!
Founded in 1963, the ICPSR Summer Program is recognized throughout the world as the preeminent forum for basic and advanced training in the methodologies and technologies of social science research. We serve a diverse multidisciplinary and international constituency. Our general instructional philosophy emphasizes the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive social issues. The ICPSR Summer Program also creates a unique and supportive social environment that facilitates professional networking and encourages the exchange of ideas about the theory and practice of social science research.
Thank you for your interest in the ICPSR Summer Program. 2013 marked our Fiftieth Anniversary and we had a great year, with record participation. We have great things planned for the future. So, I hope to see you here in Ann Arbor or at one of our other locations next summer!
