What We Do
Statistical consulting is free to all members of the UMD research community (undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff), in all departments and disciplines. Research is increasingly data-driven, and we are available to answer your statistics and analysis questions through email or an in-person consultation. We currently specialize in SAS and R but can provide limited programming support using Stata and SPSS. We may also refer you to a software specialist as needed. Our mission statement contains information on the overarching goals of our services.
