The department of Information and Communications Technology has elected to cover the costs of SPSS for student labs across campus. This includes the virtual lab along with many locations within colleges. The use of SPSS in these labs must be restricted to teaching only, so no research or other work that is beneficial to the U of Sask is permitted.
