The Summer Program offers basic methodological and technical training, along with opportunities for advanced work in specialized areas. It also provides active, participatory data-analytic experiences that complement formal lectures and discussions.
ICPSR has offered educational opportunities through the Summer Program since 1963, when the first cohort of 82 participants arrived in Ann Arbor, Michigan for intensive training in quantitative methods. The Program has grown mightily. It continues to provide quality instruction and to offer an impressive range of course options. Last year, a record 827 scholars attended the Summer Program. They represented 26 disciplines, 267 institutions, and more than a score of nations. The Program faculty represented 50 institutions and 11 disciplines.
