Study Studio is available on the second floor of the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center.

The Bureau of Sociological Research is hosting a panel of researchers and decision makers across the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and the state of Nebraska for a discussion on research and evaluation projects that have been supported by academic survey research services. They will discuss the role of academic research services in their work.

The panel, “The Role of Survey Research Shops from a Client Perspective,” is at 1 p.m. Feb. 12 in the Unity Room of the Gaughan Multicultural Center. It is free and open to the public.

  • Patrick Habecker, research assistant professor in the Department of Sociology. His research focuses on substance use, hidden and hard-to-reach populations, and survey methodology.
