Community Outreach

  • STATCOM is a student-led organization that provides pro-bono statistical consulting for governmental and non-profit organizations. Its clients generally do not have the funds to hire a professional consultant, but have information to collect or data to analyze that would help them in making more informed decisions about their operations. STATCOM's mission does not include consulting on projects from nongovernmental or for-profit entities, such as business or academic researchers.
