ASA/MAA Joint Committee on Undergraduate Statistics and Data Science Education


To stimulate effective change in the teaching of undergraduate statistics and data science, especially at institutions where the department of mathematics bears primary responsibility for the teaching of courses in these disciplines. The Committee should examine and make recommendations concerning:

  • Individual course offerings
  • Teaching practices
  • Faculty qualifications
  • Course sequences in support of various options
  • Use of technology
  • Connections with other departments that use or teach statistics or data science
  • Requirements for undergraduate majors in these disciplines
  • Preparation of elementary and secondary teachers in these disciplines
  • Adapting current undergraduate curricula based on changes within these disciplines and in K-12 education in these disciplines
  • Composition: The Committee is composed of 6 members, three members from the American Statistical Association (ASA) and three members from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). Each year, each organization will appoint/reappoint one member from their organization for a 3-year term. Members can serve for a maximum of two consecutive 3-year terms. The Chair is a member of the Committee and serves as chair for two years. The Chair is alternately appointed by the ASA and MAA. The committee will coordinate with the MAA through non-voting liaisons appointed by the MAA Committee on the Undergraduate Program in Mathematics (CUPM) and the Special Interest Group of the MAA on Statistics Education (SIGMAA Stat Ed). The committee will coordinate with the ASA through non-voting liaisons appointed by the ASA Education Council and the ASA Section on Statistics and Data Science Education.
