CONNECTION WITH COMMUNITY COLLEGES: second in the guidelines for undergraduate statistics programs webinar series
The American Statistical Association endorses the value of undergraduate programs in statistical science, both for statistical science majors and for students in other majors seeking a minor or concentration. Guidelines for such programs were promulgated in 2000, and a new workgroup is working to update them.
To help gather input and identify issues and areas for discussion, the workgroup has organized a series of webinars to focus on different issues.
