Workshop

The Workshop on Quantitative Research Methods in Education, Health, and Social Sciences (QMEHSS) serves as an important venue on the University of Chicago campus for building an intellectual community of colleagues who share methodological interests. Workshop participants meet biweekly to discuss working papers and brainstorm solutions to methodological problems encountered in ongoing research. Participants have included faculty members, researchers, and students from the Social Sciences Division, Health Studies, Statistics, Public Policy, the National Opinion Research Center, the Consortium for Chicago School Research, and colleagues from the University of Illinois in Chicago. In addition, we have invited speakers from other major universities to share with us their latest work. 

The Workshop meets every other Friday from 1030 am until 1200 noon in the Social Science Research Center, Second Floor of the McGiffert House, Conference Room 240, located at 5751 South Woodlawn Avenue. The room location is subject to change, so please check specifc announcement to confirm workshop location.
