Statistics Building Fort Collins, Colorado, nestled against the foothills of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, is home to Colorado State University's Department of Statistics. Our department has grown substantially since its inception in 1970 and enjoys an international reputation.
All of our faculty are active in research on statistical theory and methodology, which is complex, challenging, and extremely useful in important real-world problems. Some of these problems come from our connections with nearby federal research agencies, including the US Forest Service, National Center for Atmospheric Research, National Institute for Standards and Technology, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
