To the People of Missouri:
Student leaders at the University of Missouri recently placed a spotlight on the systemic racism present on our campus, and we at the School of Information Science and Learning Technologies stand with our student leaders. We respect the symbolic importance of recent actions. Protest in many forms is a good response to the members of our campus community who demonstrate a lack of respect for the basic rights and humanity of students and colleagues of color.
The ASIS&T Student Chapter will be hosting a workshop on R, a programming language and software for statistics and data analysis from 2-4 this Friday (October 30th) in 201 Townsend Hall. The workshop will be conducted by SISLT alum, Dr. Sean Burns, a professor of Information Science at the University of Kentucky.
The workshop will consist of a demonstration of data cleaning, data management, analysis and visualization tools in R. Feel free to bring your own data to work on.
