[Words appear: Sandi Cole, director, Center for Education and Lifelong Learning]
Sandi speaks: Our work with the commons and the Indiana Statistical Consulting Center has truly benefited our research project. The members of their team came together with the members of our research team. They were truly embedded in that team. They helped us make decisions about the implications of our research, and as a result I think our research and the outcomes of that research are much stronger.

Emily speaks: For faculty and graduate student researchers in the social sciences, the Social Science Research Commons offers a one-stop shop with everything from personal consulting and group workshops to sensitive data management and data analysis tools.

Emily speaks: The commons is a state-of-the-art facility located in Woodburn Hall, in the heart of the Bloomington campus and is designed to serve as a central hub to support, coordinate, and stimulate collaborative social science research at IU Bloomington.
Our space is equipped with smartboards, a video wall, videoconferencing equipment, and over 30 computer workstations, all designed to help collaborate and share best practices.
And that’s where the true value of the SSRC comes in—with our people. Experts in statistics, analytics, epidemiology, survey methods, data science, and more are here to provide you with professional, experienced guidance for every part of the research process.

Scott speaks: Our team has helped researchers take a variety of different workflows and move them from small scale at their workstation to the supercomputing facilities that we have here at Indiana University, helping researchers develop the tools that they need to do their analysis. From the concept to the results, the SSRC is here to help.
