The Consultation team is made up of a Statistics faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. Under the supervision of the center director, the biostatistics graduate students and statistics undergraduate students (Collaborators) get the opportunity to work with researchers across GVSU and its environs. Learning through engagement is fostered by giving the students opportunities to lead certain aspects of the projects. We are funded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) - to pay salaries of undergraduate students and to have a faculty member get half time release. Graduate Assistants are funded by the university via the office of Graduate Studies. The Department of Statistics provides necessary office supplies.
