The 2012 ICPSR Summer Program was a great success! This was the fiftieth Summer Program and it had a record-shattering total of 1045 participants. Our instructional staff consisted of 91 faculty and 47 teaching assistants. We offered a total of 75 courses on a wide variety of methodological and substantive topics. And, the Hubert M. Blalock Lecture Series presented 16 sets of lectures and roundtables on advanced statistical methods, issues in professional development, and topics on race and ethnicity.
