Interested in refreshing your quantitative skills or learning a new method that will aid in your research? Whether you are a faculty member or a graduate student, a great place to accomplish both tasks is the Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research at the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). ICPSR offers both month-long and 3-5 day short courses. All month-long courses and many of the short courses are offered at the University of Michigan, though several short courses are offered at different institutions throughout the country, including right here at Indiana University (and hosted by WIM!). Who better to provide you information about ICPSR than the Director of the Summer Program himself? Dr. Jacoby will provide a brief description of the ICPSR Summer Program and answer your questions in this hour-long informational session following his WIM presentation on multidimensional scaling. You are welcome to attend both, or only this informational session. Come have all your questions answered by the person who knows more about the Summer Program than anyone else!
Dr. Jacoby is Professor of Political Science at Michigan State University. He is also a Research Scientist at the University of Michigan and the Director of ICPSR’s Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research.
