TWU’s Center for Research Design and Analysis (CRDA) operates under the oversight of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) and of an advisory committee with representation from all three TWU campuses. Under the direction of Dr. Rene Paulson, ORSP Senior Statistical Consulting Director and her staff of statisticians, graduate research assistants, and analysts, CRDA provides research support to faculty and student researchers.

The primary purpose of CRDA is to provide faculty and students with the appropriate level of support needed for their qualitative and quantitative research. Additionally, CRDA will assist faculty with their current research projects, increase faculty and students’ knowledge about the research process and data analysis, and train graduate statistics students (GRAs) in research and analysis consulting.
