|2019: We are now the Section on Statistics and Data Science Education (SSDSE)
The Section on Statistical Education voted on updates to the section charter and name. The proposed changes have been approved, as of 2019! Our section is now named "Section on Statistics and Data Science Education." See our updated charter.
Members of the Charter Committee, Erin Blankenship, Bill Notz, and Cassandra Pattanayak, developed a proposed revision to the Section charter (earlier, October draft) that was worked on by all section members in the spring and reviewed in the fall. They also ran a webinar before the vote to discuss the proposed changes, answer any questions, and provide a forum for discussion. Watch the recorded webinar from March 5, 2019: Discussion on Potential Updates to Section Charter and Name. You may also find this preliminary working definition of Data Science document useful.
