Through a partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and the Graduate Student Association (GSA), all UB graduate students can receive free assistance with statistical aspects of their final projects (thesis, dissertation, qualifying paper/projects, course assignments). The lab caters to students with all levels of experience, even those with no stats background. Statistics workshops for students of all levels are also offered periodically.
The focus of this lab is to strengthen quantitative skills, so that the student can independently interpret and draw conclusions from their analysis. The lab will offer guidance on research projects by instructing students on principles of research design, teaching statistical concepts and procedures, and assist students with using/troubleshooting analytical software.
Registered graduate students can seek statistical support in 450 Park Hall at designated hours provided by the Statistics Lab Assistant during the academic year.
Or by appointment
For an initial consultation, please stop by office hours or schedule an appointment by contacting Jou Fei Huang via email at email@example.com
