The Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA will have three research training institutes this summer. Registration for these institutes is now open!
The CIRP Summer Institute (August 12 -14, 2009) enhances your ability to use CIRP data for assessment, campus decision-making, or for your own research. Newly designed for 2009, this year's CSI will focus on several content areas of the CIRP surveys and introduce the new CIRP factors in data analysis. The Institute is taught by expert instructors from the Higher Education Research Institute, including CIRP Director John Pryor, CIRP Assistant Director for Research Linda DeAngelo, HERI Associate Director of Data Management & Analysis Serge Tran, and HERI Director Sylvia Hurtado. Participants may register for one of two tracks, depending on SPSS familiarity. For more information and to register, visit http://www.gseis.ucla.edu/heri/summerInstitute.php
The Diversity Research Institute (August 6-7, 2009) provides a framework to assess the institutional climate for diversity, campus diversity practices, and student outcomes. Participants will engage in problem-solving around equity research methods and discuss critical policy analysis. The This Institute is facilitated by nationally-known experts in diversity; Sylvia Hurtado, director of the Higher Education Research Institute, and Mitchell Chang, HERI Affiliated Scholar and Professor of Higher Education.

In the Research Methods for Critical Analysis of Quantitative Data Institute (July 1-3, 2009) participants will learn to ask critical questions on equity issues and use techniques that have evolved to better understand inequities across the intersections of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic and immigration status, and institutional type. Institute directors are Sylvia Hurtado and Mitchell Chang. Two tracks are offered, one focused on multilevel modeling (instructor Marvin Titus) and the other on structural equation modeling (instructor Geoffrey Maruyama).
