Can I use the collaboration service if I'm not affiliated with Virginia Tech?

Yes. We provide statistical consulting and collaboration services for non-Virginia Tech clients in return for a donation to support statistical collaboration activities. Our suggested rates depend upon the type of work requested and who the statistical collaborator is. We typically suggest between $75 and $125 per hour for graduate student statisticians and between $200 and $350 per hour for faculty members. Interested parties should email or call the director to discuss arrangements.

Students in the Department of Statistics also provide pro-bono statistical consultation and collaboration for local community non-profits and governmental organizations through the organization StatCom.
