Two announcements from the research office:

Greetings, All.

SAS is now offering a free University Edition of their powerful statistical analysis software:

Feedback to date about this software indicates that while it is perhaps a bit cumbersome compared to SPSS for the average user, it is very powerful and easier to use than something like R .... and it's free. Also, SAS has a long history and excellent documentation, user support community, online tutorials and so on.

If you decide to try it out, please do share your feedback with the Research Centre. Thanks!
Donna Roman, AVP Research
