IIRDA staff assists faculty prior to beginning projects in addition to those with existing datasets. More information can be found under Faculty Consultation Services.
This is a free service and faculty who want to make an appointment simply email firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments are limited to 1-1.5 hours weekly but faculty can come every week if they want.
IIRDA's goal is to teach faculty not to do the work for them. If a faculty member wants us to do the analyses for them, we will do so for a fee (if we have time-free service comes first).
More information can be found under Professional Data Analysis Services. The distinction between free and fee is as follows: if the faculty is meeting with us and we are showing or discussing their project or data (and they are doing additional reading we suggest) it is free; if we are in our offices by ourselves running a faculty member’s data, there is a fee. We provide an estimate after we receive the data and get an idea of its structure.
