The faculty of the Department of Statistics stand in solidarity with those calling for the eradication of racial biases in our criminal justice system.  We support peaceful protests that demand law enforcement be color blind when protecting our communities, and we affirm a conscious commitment to foster diversity, equity and inclusion for the students, staff and faculty at UCR. 
The Department of Statistics has two primary interrelated objectives as it serves the University, the State, and beyond. First, we aim to provide both undergraduate and graduate students with strong degree programs and excellent instruction in probability, applied statistics, and theoretical statistics. Second, we aim to conduct and publish outstanding research while promoting the solid practice of statistics at the University of California and beyond.
