The Michigan Mixed Methods
Research & Scholarship Program
At the University of Michigan, we are building a new hub for mixed methods research led by world renowned mixed methodologists, Dr. John W. Creswell and Dr. Michael D. Fetters. We are an interdisciplinary program bringing together scholars within and outside of the University of Michigan with national/international expertise in mixed methods.
Our mission is to promote mixed methods research and scholarship across academic disciplines through education, training, consulting and mentoring with the support of the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Michigan.
What's Mixed Methods?
Mixed methods research (MMR) is “an approach to research in social, behavioral, and health sciences in which the investigator gathers both quantitative (closed-ended) and qualitative (open-ended) data, integrates the two, and then draws interpretations based on the combined strength of both sets of data to understand research problems.” (Creswell 2014, Concise Introduction to Mixed Methods Research) It is rapidly becoming a popular methodology used in social and health sciences the past 30 years.
