Note Regarding SCC Operations During COVID-19 Pandemic
While we are all experiencing extreme disruption of our daily lives due to COVID-19, the Statistical Consulting Center (SCC) remains open for business, but with a few changes to our normal operations:
- Walk-in hours are suspended until further notice.
- Meetings with clients will be held via Zoom (or similar video conferencing technology) and other communications will be handled via e-mail.
- SCC Seminars have been discontinued, but will resume (possibly via Zoom, at first).
Despite the difficult circumstances, this is actually an excellent time to seek help from the SCC!
Please stay safe!
About the SCC
The Statistical Consulting Center (SCC), in existence since 1990, is a Core Facility of the University of Georgia. The mission of the SCC is threefold: to provide collaborative research assistance to faculty, research staff, and students in all departments of the University of Georgia; to increase the quality of quantitative research performed at the University; and to provide an advantageous educational experience to students of statistics through training as statistical collaborators.
The SCC consists of a faculty Director (Dr. Dan Hall), an Associate Director (Dr. Xianyan Chen), five Consulting Assistants (graduate students supported on assistantship to work for the SCC), and several Volunteer Consulting Assistants (unsupported graduate students). Please see the Staff and Appointment Hours link to the right for contact information and further details.
The SCC is a unit within the UGA Department of Statistics, and receives partial financial support from the Office of Research, the Graduate School, and the Franklin College of Arts & Sciences. The links to the right describe the operation of the SCC, its services, and its policies.
