The Statistical Consulting Group is still open for business, despite the move to remote work and social distancing through the remainder of the spring semester.
Members of the team will meet virtually with Iowa State faculty, staff and graduate students who need to use statistics to answer their research questions. Virtual mode is not business as usual, but the team has quickly recalibrated.
“Spring tends to be our busy season, and I want people to know that we’re ready to help,” said University Professor Philip Dixon, who serves as the group’s faculty coordinator. “I have a great group of graduate students, and from our various remote spaces, we’ve been quickly learning new ways to assist people via whatever technology works best for them, whether that’s Skype, Zoom, WebEx or over the phone.”
