The Pros of Pro Bono Statistical Consulting

Abstract: Students involved in pro bono statistical work, while acquiring hands-on skills that contribute to their own professional development, also embrace a spirit of volunteerism that will likely stay with them throughout their careers. In recent years, an increasing number of student statisticians have become actively engaged in pro bono work and have helped contribute to an expansion of volunteerism in the profession. The panel includes statisticians who have volunteered their time during graduate school and beyond, and have been invited to reflect on their experiences.
