The Statistical Consulting Center (SCC) is operated by the Department of Statistics at GVSU. The Center is located in MACKINAC HALL [MAK: A-1-178] on the GVSU Allendale Campus. Our mission is to enhance university research efforts by offering quality statistical advice to faculty and student projects, to provide interdisciplinary research or instructional/collaboration opportunities for students and faculty from all departments and to develop collaborations with West Michigan businesses through consulting projects.
Statistical consulting is free to all members of the GVSU 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, SPSS and R.
In addition, the SCC also provides an educational experience for students with majors or minors in statistics via Statistics Project course STA 319.

"Statistics...the most important science in the whole world: for upon it depends the practical application of every other science and of every art; the one science essential to all political and social administration, all education, all organization based upon experience, for it only gives the results of our experience." Florence Nightingale (1820-1910).
