The Institute is comprised of workshops that bridge statistics and research methods. More than 80 graduate students, research staff and faculty from the Howard community attend and complete our workshops each year. The workshops are offered for FREE to the Howard community through the support of the NAEP-ETS Howard University Collaborative. We look forward to offering a new set of workshops in 2015.
