About Us

What is CARMA?

CARMA, the Consortium for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysis, is an interdisciplinary consortium devoted to helping faculty, graduate students and professionals learn of current developments in various areas of research methods and statistics. Our focus in research methods is relevant to the management and organizational sciences. CARMA is a non-profit unit at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. CARMA was established in 1997 by Dr. Larry J. Williams (former Chairperson of the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management and Founding Editor of Organizational Research Methods) and was located at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia from 1997-2009. From 2010-2014 CARMA was located at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. Then, from 2014-2016 we were hosted at the University of North Dakota.

What are CARMA's Goals?

  • To provide continuing education on research methods and data analysis (introductory to advanced level topics) for graduate students, faculty at various stages of their careers, and professionals
  • To serve as a resource for those who teach research methods and data analysis
