Here is my 2015 compendium of summer stats and methods courses around the world. This evidently is a popular feature, as the specific link to last year's list received 6,444 hits! I am leaving all programs from the last few years in the table below, on the assumption that most will also operate this year. Information for 2015 (e.g., session dates) is filled in, if known. Cells are blank for programs that have not yet reported this information for 2015.

**Check back often for updates!**Multiple programs at the same university or under the aegis of the same sponsor are shaded in color. As always, please notify me (via the link to my faculty webpage in the right-hand column) of errors, omissions, bad links, etc.

Another website some of you might find interesting is this 2015 calendar from the "World of Statistics."
