The NSF funded the "CAUSEway: Workshops for Navigating the Terrain of Undergraduate Statistics" project for $900,000 over four years from 2006 through 2009. Workshops will be offered in the first three years and evaluation will be the primary focus in the final year.

The CAUSEway project includes three different workshop audiences: introductory statistics instructors at two-year and four-year colleges and universities, mathematics education faculty who teach statistical concepts to undergraduate pre-service teachers, and faculty working to create, develop, or enhance undergraduate major, minor, or concentration programs in statistics.

We plan to get the ball rolling by offering workshops during the summer of 2006. Brian Jersky will be hosting workshops for mathematics education faculty at St. Mary's College of California in Moraga, CA on July 25 through 28. Roger Woodard, Ginger Rowell, and Bob delMas will lead a workshop for introductory statistics instructors at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee on July 10 through 13, 2006. Julie Legler is coordinating a workshop for invitees from institutions with established undergraduate statistics programs on June 22 and 23, 2006.
