Academics and Student Life
Our department is dedicated to a high-quality education and student experience for biostatistics degree candidates as well as those pursuing primary degrees in other departments.
Excellence in teaching is a legacy tracing back to the earliest days of our department which found its footing with Lowell Reed and Margaret Merrell and was established by the late Helen Abbey, winner of three Golden Apple Awards. As of 2013, our faculty members have won a total of 64 Golden Apple Awards for Excellence in Teaching in addition to Advising, Mentoring and Teaching Recognition Awards; more than any other department.
