As in past years, free statistical consultation will be available this fall term, from graduate students enrolled in our practicum course STAT 551 (Statistical Consulting).
Students in this course have already completed STAT 550 (Techniques of Statistical Consulting), and will be undertaking this academic activity under my overall supervision.
