Welcome to the UB Summer Institute in Advanced Methods. The UB Summer Institute brings together junior and advanced researchers in a collegial, intellectually engaging, and multidisciplinary atmosphere. Since 2002, the UB Summer Institute has offered students, faculty, and researchers workshops in advanced statistics and social science research methods. Our approach emphasizes providing workshop participants with easy-to-understand, practical information about advanced statistics and methods, and then offering students the hands-on opportunity to use their new knowledge and skills to analyze their own data. Our goal is for workshop participants to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to confidently analyze their own data when they return home.
