The Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research (IQMR)

Since its founding seventeen years ago, the Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research has welcomed well over two thousand graduate students and junior faculty.

The institute seeks to enable participants to create and critique methodologically sophisticated qualitative research designs, including case studies, tests of necessity or sufficiency, and narrative or interpretive work. It explores the techniques, uses, strengths, and limitations of these methods, while emphasizing their relationships with alternative approaches. Short descriptions of some of the modules that were offered in 2019 can be found under "IQMR Module Description" .

IQMR attendees have the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their own qualitative research designs. 

CQRM member institutions will use their own meritocratic criteria to select participants to attend the 2020 institute, and must notify CQRM of their choices by February 24th, 2020. 

Students, fellows and junior faculty who were not sure if they would have be selected, or who attend non-member organizations, should apply directly to CQRM through the open pool. The link to the application form is here. The deadline for applications is November 4, 2019. Applicants will be notified of the outcome in December. CQRM will cover the costs of participation, lodging, and meals for successful applicants. Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation costs to and from Syracuse University.

Participants at the 2020 institute will arrive on Sunday June 14th, and depart on Friday June 26th, or Saturday June 27th. Sessions will commence on Monday June 15th. The institute will run until the afternoon of Friday June 26th, with a two day break on June 20th and 21st.
