Comments from Past Participants
"I am still very pleased about the Fundamentals of SEM workshop I took last summer! It provided a great knowledge base on which I have subsequently been able to build substantially through advanced readings and consultation with colleagues. In fact, I have been able to develop enough expertise to offer an introductory graduate course on the topic. This has truly been the best professional development experience to date, and I continue to recommend it to both colleagues and students. I will definitely be back at future stats camps!" – Martin Sellbom, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, The University of Alabama

Comments from Past Participants
"Just a quick note to thank you for a wonderful class. I really learned a tremendous amount. Great workshop, nicely paced, good balance between theory and the practicalities of doing SEM. Definitely worth the cost and, more important to me, worth my time." – Megan R. Gunnar, Distinguished McKnight University Professor, Institute for Child Development, University of Minnesota
"Although I have been involved with structural equation modeling (SEM) for many years now, I am still an inveterate SEM course taker. Without question, of all the courses I have ever taken, the courses presented at the KU Stats Camp have to be the best ever – hands down! Virtually everything about them is superb – material presented is thorough and well documented, slide content is always clear and very readable, pacing of the presentation is carefully monitored to match internalization of content, allotment of time for questions and extended discussion is generous, assistance with application of statistical techniques is ongoing, and - as if that were not enough, participants are provided with an abundance of supportive resources by way of key references, computer input/output files, visual and audio copies of the presentation, important reading materials, and guides to understanding critical statistical and SEM concepts. In my view, the Summer Stats Camp at KU is an absolute gold mine of information." – Barbara Byrne, School of Psychology, University of Ottawa
