Project Description: The Master of Public Policy program emphasizes data and analysis skills, and students are required to utilize Stata for classes. Students were required to purchase Stata with no financial assistance or attempt to use the free university-wide Stata to complete classwork. This free resource is oftentimes slow and difficult to use. STF funds were granted to purchase 200 perpetual Stata licenses for students for their personal computers. Licenses are being used for at least 6 cohorts of students (700 students).
