The Department of Statistics seeks to maintain a diverse population of faculty, staff, and students through aggressive recruiting and enhanced support services. We encourage participation in diversity workshops for faculty, staff, and teaching assistants. Incorporating diversity awareness into student orientation programs and coordinating our efforts with campus-wide programs and initiatives aimed at diversity awareness demonstrates our commitment to diversity. We believe that a diverse population of students, faculty, and staff enriches a community in which all members strive for excellence.
