SPSS statistical software now available on campus free of charge
SPSS modules and products for Windows operating systems are now free of charge for faculty and staff. The license agreement also permits students to use SPSS in campus computer labs that have the software installed. For the complete SPSS service description, please consult the IT Knowledge Base.
The removal of the charge is the result of a decision by the CIO to centrally fund the software for Windows users on campus, making it freely available at the university without a chargeback mechanism, effective September 1, 2008. (There continues to be a charge for Macintosh versions of the software, although the Office of the CIO will be undertaking negotiations with the vendor in this regard in the near future.)
