Welcome to Michigan Statistics

Welcome to the Department of Statistics at U-M. We are part of the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. We have a fast-growing reputation as an international leader in statistical education and research. The 2010 National Research Council study placed us firmly in the top ten among all statistics departments in the US. We have a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs serving a wide spectrum of students. Many of our faculty members are renowned researchers who work on some of the most important problems of the day, including modeling and analyzing complex and high-dimensional data. Among them are a MacArthur Fellow (Susan Murphy), the current president of the International Statistical Institute (Vijay Nair), editors of leading statistics journals (Xuming He, George Michailidis and Naisyin Wang), and elected fellows of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. We continue to recruit the highest-quality faculty and students, and dedicate resources to producing leaders of the field for the next generation.
