The mission of QuanTM is to promote the teaching, learning, and use of quantitative theory and methods. The Institute seeks to promote this mission in precollege, college, and graduate education, as well as the scholarly community. QuanTM will also be looking to provide training and resources outside the academic community.
The 2012-2013 theme of QuantTM is “Big Data.” As a recent article in the New York Times points out, business, public health, and academia—to name just a few—all face huge challenges in marshaling and using tremendous new sources of data. QuanTM is pleased to be hosting a series of speakers and workshops related to the topic of “Big Data.”
QuanTM is currently running a new college-wide statistics course, an undergraduate fellowship program, a pre-doctoral and faculty visiting program, and a statistical consulting service. Beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year, the institute will also run a faculty skill-building leave program. Information on these and future endeavors may be found through the above links.
