Research Technologies supports statistical, QDA, and online survey applications that are available to Loyola students, faculty, and staff on open-access computing lab and office desktops via the following services:
- advising, consulting and training for supported applications (training is limited to specific applications: SPSS, NVivo, and Opinio)
- managing the licensing of all supported research-related software
- arranging for home use of specific applications for faculty and students
- assistance with the creation of, and administration of, elections to faculty and staff organizations/councils
Our staff consists of one full-time staff member and statistical advisers/research assistants. The bulk of the advising and consulting work with undergraduate and graduate students is handled by the statistical advisers. Statistical advisers are graduate students engaged in course work and research that focuses on quantitative and qualitative research methods.
