Events & Workshops

The TXCRDC regularly hosts presentations, workshops, and occasional special events to benefit researchers who are involved with or interested in learning about RDC-based research. 

The discussion and speaker series runs during the regular academic year. Other events included Proposal Development Workshops (held at least once a semester) and occasional special events often including visitors from the U.S. Census Bureau and from other RDCs in the national RDC network. 

We distribute Email reminders and flyers before events.  Send a brief note to here to be included in the distribution list.
