We hope you will be able to join us for a symposium on September 20, 2019 celebrating the career and contributions of Robert L. Kahn (March 28, 1918-January 6, 2019), sponsored by the Institute for Social Research and ISR’s Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan. The event will highlight the many contributions Bob made over his distinguished career, and provide time for attendees to share their memories of him. You are invited to this day-long symposium on Friday, September 20, 2019 followed by a reception.

Dr. Robert L. Kahn relished the exchange of ideas. He enjoyed designing studies which targeted practical problems, and most of all analyzing and considering how best to apply the findings. He was a strong supporter of young people, junior scientists, women and minority scholars. He was committed to social justice and backed some of the toughest early decisions in the field.

Please join us in celebrating his career and contributions to the field of social science.
