Summer at the CIP!

CIP will be offering three summer workshops this June, and will again hold regular book club meetings. Come join us!

R Users Group

CIP is pleased to announce our support of the R Users Group at Kenyon.

The R Users group is composed of faculty and staff of Kenyon College who use the R programming language in their teaching and/or research. Members discuss nifty strategies, vexing challenges, and shiny new features available in R. Conversations focus on using R and teaching with it, not on the content of courses or scholarship. Users of all levels of expertise are welcomed, but the group is not intended to teach basic R skills.
