Data Consultants Image

The mission of the Design, Assessment Tools and Analysis (DATA) Consultants is to provide expert assistance in the following areas:

  • statistical consulting
  • data management
  • survey design
  • questionnaire and test construction
  • program evaluation
  • assessment

Although we serve a wide variety of clients, one of our priorities is to support and stimulate grant-related projects at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. We also work with outside organizations.

We invite you to browse the profiles of our consultants and directly contact those who seem to be the best match for your needs. (You may want to use Ctrl-F to search this page by keyword.) If you need assistance choosing a consultant, our director, Dr. Chris Rosnick, may be able to help.

Because every project is different, the details of any agreement should be negotiated directly between each client and consultant.
