Transitioning to R

Jun 22
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
University of Richmond, Faculty Hub - Third Floor of Boatwright Library

If you’ve ever wanted to move your quantitative research program from proprietary software, such as SAS, STATA, SPSS, or Microsoft Excel, to the open-source programming language R, this program is designed for you. Through one-on-one consultations and a one-day workshop, the Transitioning to R program will help you make this move by:

  • Demystifying the R programming language 
  • Learning how to create scriptable workflows for data input and manipulation
  • Creating publication-ready data visualizations using the ggplot2 package

One-on-one consultations are not required but are highly encouraged to ensure the program is tailored to your specific needs. During pre-workshop consultations, we will cover your current processes, analysis, and discipline-specific needs. Post-workshop consultations will help you implement your new knowledge and troubleshoot any road bumps that may arise.

The one-day workshop will be offered on Wednesday, June 22 in the Faculty Hub. (Asynchronous materials will also be available for those who cannot attend.) Space is limited.
