Statistical Software Support and Consulting Services provides support to users of statistical software throughout the UVM community, as well as general statistical consulting. The goals of the SCC are to promote scientific collaboration between disciplines, enhance the quality of research at UVM, and improve the education of UVM students. The clinic is supported by UVM Libraries and the Statistics Program.
Located on the first floor of Bailey-Howe Library in room 115, these services are provided by Alan Howard (M.S. Biostatistics, 1980), who has been assisting users of statistical software at UVM since 1986.
