About CAUSE

The CAUSE Charter (PDF)

Arising from a strategic initiative of the American Statistical Association, CAUSE is a national organization whose mission is to support and advance undergraduate statistics education, in four target areas: resources, professional development, outreach, and research. The overarching goals in each area are:

  • Resources: Collect, review, develop, and disseminate resources for members of the undergraduate statistics education community.

  • Professional Development: Coordinate, develop, and disseminate opportunities, programs, and workshops for teachers and others involved in statistics education projects and initiatives, present and future.

  • Outreach: Establish and promote communication and collaborations among statistics educators, as well as with other professional organizations and disciplines that are concerned with undergraduate statistics education.

  • Research: Establish the area of statistics education research as a recognized discipline with a visible presence. Prepare and connect researchers from all disciplines that conduct research in statistics education.

Our primary vehicle for communication is CAUSEweb.org, which is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

The CAUSE Editorial board is also the statistics editorial board for the MERLOT project.
