The last Graduate Faculty Workshop will be this Friday, April 22 at 10:00 a.m. (with breakfast starting at 9:30 a.m.) in Eppes 214.

Dr. Brian Stults will be presenting “An Introduction to Spatial Analysis in Criminology.” This workshop will introduce students to fundamental concepts in the spatial analysis of crime. Attendees will also learn how to use free and open-source software to work with spatial data, including generating crime maps and estimating spatial regression models.

Planning to attend? Please RSVP to Andrew Ranson by Wednesday, April 20.

The Graduate-Faculty Workshop Series was developed by graduate students and is dedicated to providing opportunities for the enhancement of research skills for graduate students in the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice.  Specifically to organize sessions that facilitate a workshop environment in which graduate students can obtain skills and knowledge from faculty members that they would not typically learn in their coursework, thus adding to the research skills available in a student’s “toolkit”. Workshops will cover topics related to using specific data sources, data analysis and statistical software, and advanced methods.

If you are a graduate student or faculty member interested in getting involved with the Graduate-Faculty Workshop Series, please do not hesitate to contact one of the student organizers or faculty advisors.
