• Offering opportunities for all statistical educators to share and discuss ideas through professional meetings, online discussion groups, and personal connections made through the section.

• Providing educational resources for the extended statistical community, including research findings, professional development, and funding opportunities.

• Creating and shaping policies of the ASA and professional communities regarding educational innovations.
