As the Department of Statistics gears up to begin another academic year, we are writing to share our 2019-2020 Newsletter. While the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed how our department operates on campus, we remain hopeful about the upcoming academic year and have exciting things ahead. Some highlights include welcoming a new department chair, Professor Liza Levina, and launching a new Bridge Master’s Program in Applied Statistics. 

There will not be an alumni reception at the JSM this year. We look forward to seeing everyone in person next year. Meanwhile, we hope that you enjoy keeping up with the departmental happenings via this newsletter. We love to hear from our alumni, so feel free to send us an email at

Enjoy the rest of your summer, and GO BLUE!
