The Summer Institute for Survey Research Techniques takes the health and safety of our participants, instructors, and staff very seriously. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Michigan has decided that spring/summer term courses will have to be conducted remotely. Therefore, we are currently offering an alternative remote format.
