Statistical Consulting Center Opens in the College of Business

Oct. 16, 2006

The Department of Management Science and Statistics has established a Statistical Consulting Center in the College of Business to provide statistical services to UTSA faculty, staff and students, as well as researchers in the community. The center will be staffed by doctoral students in the college's new Ph.D. in Applied Statistics degree program. Faculty in the department will provide additional expertise as needed.

Stephanie Cano, senior lecturer, will direct the new center. Cano previously managed a similar consulting center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she received her Ph.D. in biostatistics.

The Statistical Consulting Center will provide assistance with experimental study design, sample size selection, data analysis, and statistical computing.

"As UTSA moves forward in its mission to achieve Tier 1 research status, the center will provide much needed statistical support for student and faculty researchers as well as a training ground for our students," said Nandini Kannan, chair of the Department of Management Science and Statistics.

In addition to statistical services, the center will also offer non-credit short courses on data analysis using different statistical software packages as well as Regression, Reliability and Experimental Design.

The center, located in BB 4.02.68, is open for walk-in consulting Monday and Wednesday from 1-4 p.m. UTSA faculty, staff and students may avail themselves of the services free of charge for 1 hour per week (up to a maximum of 10 hours during a semester). Longer-term projects will be charged an hourly fee. For questions or additional information, please e-mail the center at
