PSC Honors Archive, 2012


Fred Conrad succeeds James Lepkowski, the founding director, as head of Michigan's Program in Survey Methodology. The unit provides graduate-level training in conducting scientifically sound surveys, one of only three programs in the U.S. to do so. Conrad says of his appointment: "I am deeply honored to be heading the Program in Survey Methodology at ISR, which is known worldwide for its expertise in this area. Our program greatly benefits from the involvement of ISR faculty, many of whom are affiliated with Michigan's social science departments, which are among the best in the world." Conrad also will serve as the director of the Joint Program in Survey Methodology, an initial step in eventual integration of the two programs at Michigan.
