The Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry, based in the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, is the host of the Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry (IQMR). IQMR has been awarded $177,060 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support the 2015, 2016, and 2017 institutes and authors workshops.

IQMR is a two-week program held each summer at Syracuse University, and is co-directed by Colin Elman and Andrew Bennett.  Initiated in 2002, approximately 185 students attend every summer.  In addition to significant support from the NSF, IQMR has over 80 sponsoring departments including major universities across the US and institutions from Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Germany, Great Britain, and elsewhere.
