Our graduate students founded Statistics in the Community (StatCom), a premier volunteer statistical consulting organization that engages the local community, and serves as an excellent example of 'statistics at work'. The education and research programs at Purdue Statistics aim at globally important scientific issues such as cancer, financial forecasting, pattern recognition, and gene regulatory networks, that in turn provide our graduates with the training and experience to obtain exciting jobs in industry, government, academic, and non-profit institutions.

The future of Statistics is bright, and Purdue University is proud to be leading the way!
