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.

JMP Software and Seminar at CSU

Modern data require software and users capable of visualizing and analyzing with modern techniques.  The Department of Statistics has partnered with another department at Colorado State University (CSU) to purchase a JMP site license.  JMP is an “interactive statistical discovery software” developed by SAS. JMP will be used in Statistics undergraduate courses and is increasingly being used by collaborators across CSU that engage with the Graybill Statistical Laboratory.  Training students with this modern software is a key component to student engagement and success in their courses and future careers.  The Department of Statistics will host Ruth Hummel, a JMP representative, to present the software’s unique capabilities to the campus community on December 5, 2017. South Campus Seminar (Tuesday, December 5, 7:30am). North Campus Seminar (Tuesday, December 5, 11am).
