Welcome to DISM

The Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology is an interdisciplinary initiative located within the Social Science Research Institute in Gross Hall at Duke University. Founded in 2010 by Dr. D. Sunshine Hillygus, DISM is a space where researchers can exchange ideas about survey research and learn about survey research methods. Welcoming Duke affiliates from across academic and professional fields, DISM has many resources available to support research including training in survey research methods, consulting for individual projects, and funding opportunities.
