Richard L. Gorsuch, PhD., statistics and designer
He is the founder and developer of UniMult. Back before the Windows were on computers, he wrote the first version of UniMult. UniMult became wildly popular because it was simple to use and yet yielded the same results as more expensive and complicated statistical programs. Professors and students loved UniMult. As time went by, UniMult users asked for a more updated UniMult that would use the features of Windows and Apple systems. Thus, UniMult version 2 was born. Dr. Gorsuch brings his multiple perspectives to designing this program. He knows what it is like to do and critique projects such as yours because he has "been there and done that". And he adds to that experience his ability to think systemically to produce what we intend to be the most powerful, flexible, and easy to use GLS stat package ever developed.
Dr. Gorsuch was a statistical wonder. He wrote many research articles but is perhaps best known is his classical text, Factor Analysis. He served for many years as a professor of psychology at Fuller Seminary and continued to mentor students after his retirement.
