The Empirical Reasoning Center (ERC) helps faculty, students, and alumnae engage critically with data - quantitative, qualitative and spatial.
What We Do
Through workshops and staffed drop-in hours, the ERC provides the Barnard community with empirical research support and technology training, ranging from Excel, to survey creation, to geographic information systems (GIS).
Meet the Team
The lab is staffed by graduate lab assistants and undergraduate empirical reasoning fellows dedicated to supporting empirical reasoning across the curriculum. We also have a full-time team that teaches workshops, manages the lab, and plans programming.
Barnard’s Empirical Reasoning Center has grown exponentially over the decade — from a lab with part-time staff to a thriving resource for faculty, students, staff, and the community beyond the College’s gates.
The ERC is hiring fellows for the Spring 2023 semester!
