Outreach and Engagement

The Department of Statistics is an active community that engages students and lifetime learners at UConn and beyond.

We contribute to the field of statistics by hosting events and participating in professional organizations. We also share our know-how with UConn researchers in other fields – and enhance the University’s research profile in the process.

Current Initiatives

Education and Training

We offer general education and research courses that serve students in virtually all majors at UConn. Members of the Department also participate in UConn programs that benefit Connecticut students and educators.


In alignment with our educational mission, we provide services to researchers at UConn to help them better understand statistical concepts and apply them to their work. Our faculty and graduate students contribute to UConn’s Statistical Consulting Services, which advise researchers from other disciplines about the collection and analysis of data.

Community Engagement

We maintain relationships with professional organizations and area companies and institutions. These connections open doors for our students and help us contribute to our field. Examples include:


The Department of Statistics regularly sponsors and hosts conferences, colloquia, lectures, and seminar series where scholars of all levels can learn and collaborate. Many of these events are local, affordable, and accessible, allowing students to participate and in some cases present their own research. Examples include:
