The mission of the Summer Institute is to provide rigorous and high quality graduate training in all phases of survey research. The program teaches state-of-the-art practice and theory in the design, implementation, and analysis of surveys. The Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques has presented courses on the sample survey since the summer of 1948, and has offered such courses every summer since. Graduate-level courses through the Program in Survey Methodology will be offered in two consecutive four-week sessions, from June 6 through July 1 and from July 5 through July 29. There are a number of one and three week courses, as well, that may be elected in each session.
