Statistical Consulting

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics coordinates opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to provide statistical consulting to individuals/organizations both within the Valparaiso University community, as well as externally in Northwest Indiana and beyond. These statistical consulting opportunities are mutually beneficial collaborations where our students provide valuable data analysis and statistical expertise for the partnering individual/organization, while also gaining real-world experience to help better prepare the students for their future careers. The students are supervised by a Valparaiso University faculty member.
