Student Representatives

Student Representatives are a selected group of students that act as a conduit between the Department of Statistics and the MA student population. They provide feedback and input to the department regarding the overall student experience. Additionally, they are responsible for relaying key messages from Columbia University administrators to the student body; acting as student ambassadors for prospective students — answering questions about the program; organizing student led events; and supporting the efforts of department wide events as appropriate.
