Senior Fellow Tom W. Smith directs NORC at the University of Chicago's Center for the Study of Politics and Society. Since 1980, he has served as Director of the General Social Survey (GSS), one of NORC's most visible projects and one of the nation's most heavily utilized datasets. He is also co-founder of the International Social Survey Program (ISSP), former Secretary General of the ISSP, and currently serving on the ISSP Standing and Methodology Committees.

Tom W. Smith is the first recipient of the NORC at the University of Chicago’s Norman Bradburn Career Achievement Award. The award was established to recognize individuals who, through the course of working for NORC, have made a significant contribution to the field of social science research or methodology. In August 2014, Tom was elected to the Sociological Research Association (SRA), an honor society of leading sociological scholars.

This event is co-sponsored by the Departments of Political Science and Sociology.

Dr. Smith will also present "Antisemitism in Contemporary America" at 5:00 pm in the Dodd Research Center Konover Auditorium on November 7.
