The Computer Services Center coordinates an IBM SPSS volume contract for the benefit of participating University departments. It includes the "IBM SPSS Statistics Standard Campus Edition" and IBM SPSS Amos modeling software.
IBM SPSS licensed under this program can be installed on University-owned computers for instructional and research purposes. These can be physical computers or thin clients/virtual desktops. The contract does not provide for home use on personally owned computers, nor does it permit the use of the package for administrative functions. Please contact the CSC if you have questions about the suitability of your planned use.
