Consulting Services at the RMC
The Research Methodology Center provides support for College of Education and Human Ecology faculty, graduate students, and staff across a broad spectrum of research methodologies and issues. We can help by discussing any aspect of a study, from data collection through analysis and reporting. Our consultants can help you select an analytical approach that addresses your research question, or provide suggestions and critiques related to your methods section. We provide a great sounding board for your research ideas, and will assist you in organizing your research plan to ensure that your study is both rigorous and reproducible. Our approach to consulting combines theory and application in a way that helps you learn – and keep on learning!
