It has now been two years since we launched our redesigned website. Over the course of having cpms.byu.edu we have expanded our ability to reach our current and prospective students, alumni, faculty and supporters. Along with the college website, we have also grown our marketing team to publicize events in the college, recruit potential majors, and inform about research being done.
We are constantly updating our website with news stories, found here. Keeping up to speed on college happenings has never been easier. Speaking of news, we have had some exciting events happening lately in the college. We have new leadership in two of our departments, mathematics and statistics. This month, we announced that Robin Roundy has been appointed as chair of Mathematics and Dennis Tolley has been appointed as chair of statistics. They replace Tyler Jarvis and Del Scott, both who have served effectively as chairs for the past six years.
These two new department chairs are experienced and capable, and we look forward to their leadership. Read more about them in the story to the right.
Other news in the statistics department includes the recent annual Summer Statistics Institute. On the website, you can read how one of our skilled faculty, Gil Fellingham, taught participants about Bayesian statistics, a relatively new statistical approach that is powerful and rapidly growing in popularity within the discipline.
We are still accepting submissions for the Memory Bytes section of Frontiers magazine. We are looking for responses to the following: Did you ever have a lab mishap while at BYU? Were you ever the cause of a small explosion or a scorched eyebrow? Or maybe you fell victim to a friend’s failed experiment. Tell us about the ups and downs of working with lab equipment as a student. You can email us your stories (up to 200 words) at email@example.com.
Stay cool in the heat and enjoy the summer!
