We are excited to share the news that applications are open for the 4th annual Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Training Institute, to be held in person from July 31 to August 4, 2023. The co-organizers and faculty are Ross Hammond, Douglas Luke, Ellis Ballard, Todd Combs, Kristen Hassmiller Lich, Matt Kasman, Virginia McKay, Alexandra Morshed, Nasim Sabounchi, and Kelsey Werner.

In this five-day training, participants will get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods with a focus on five main tracks: Agent-based Modeling, Group Model Building, Social Network Analysis, System Dynamics, and Systems Thinking.


Participants will review the major concepts of their chosen track/method, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data. The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.

The application process is open; candidates will be accepted on a monthly basis through July 10, 2023.
