Department of Statistics and Biostatistics
Attention Current and Prospective Students
The Department of Statistics and Biostatistics at the California State University East Bay is excited to welcome new and returning students for the Fall 2021 semester. As it stands right now, we are expecting to be mostly on-ground for the Fall semester. It is important to recognize that this is subject to change at any time. For the latest information, please visit our University's webpage (https://www.csueastbay.edu/coronavirus-information/index.html).
Our department office will be closed in order to significantly reduce the density of campus population in the interest of safety and health for our students, staff, and faculty.

Welcome Message From the Chair
On behalf of the Department of Statistics and Biostatistics here at CSU East Bay, I am writing this welcome message for any prospective student interested in a Statistics major, minor, or graduate degree. Our department is comprised of engaged faculty who strive for excellence in both teaching and research. Our programs are designed for a diverse student population with a diverse set of goals, whether it be to join the workforce or continue their education at the graduate level. We are excited to offer concentrations in Data Science in our newly redesigned undergraduate and graduate programs. I grew up in a small town in southern Maine and completed my undergraduate and Master’s degrees in that area. It was during that time, interacting with quality professors who possessed genuine care for their students, that I was led to take my first Statistics courses. My love for both Statistics and teaching stemmed from these positive experiences. I now wish to pay it forward to educate, guide, and mentor students who find their way into my classes and programs to set them on a path for lifelong success.
