The Extraordinary Potential of Statistical Collaboration Laboratories
Dr. Eric Vance
Dept. of Applied Mathematics
University of Colorado Boulder
Statistical Collaboration Laboratories focus on three activities:
1. Training statisticians to become
effective collaborative statisticians
2. Providing infrastructure for enabling
and accelerating research and making sound business & policy decisions
3. Improving statistical skills and
statistical literacy widely
How do we institutionalize statistical collaboration
in the practice of statistics?
Upgrade academic
statistical consulting centers by focusing on training students

Create a Network of Statistical Collaboration Laboratories
1. Create new statistical collaboration laboratories
2. Upgrade existing statistical consulting centers
3. Share best practices within networks and subnetworks
“My involvement in LISA had a strongly positive impact on my professional career and personal life.
Academically, it provided me with real-world applications of the statistical theory that we learned in our classes, which gave me a stronger understanding of the practical applications of the theory.
Professionally, my time in LISA developed my ability to interact with clients, communicate statistical concepts in terms they understand, and provide results that they actually need rather than results they initially think they need.”
223 statistical collaborators trained in LISA at Virginia Tech 2008-2016
