Campus health and safety are our top priorities. Get the latest from UT on COVID-19.

A few days ago, The University of Texas at Austin announced that all classes for the remainder of the semester will be held online, with no campus activity. The City of Austin also announced a prohibition of gatherings of more than 10 people in an enclosed space until May 1, 2020. This end date is only a few weeks prior to the start of our Summer Statistics Institute. As we get closer to that deadline UT Austin will continue to evaluate the public health situation, and determine if any sizable gatherings are appropriate.

Right now, the Insititute is on, but we are currently evaluating the possibility of other modes of delivery for this year’s Institute, and will let you know as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience in this novel experience.

Be well,
The Department of Statistics and Data Sciences

The Department of Statistics and Data Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin is hosting the 13th annual UT Summer Statistics Institute (SSI) May 26–29, 2020.  



  • SSI attracts participants from academia, health professions and marketing firms.
  • Participants acquire new statistical knowledge and skills through hands-on data analysis.
  • SSI provides an exciting venue to build statistical knowledge alongside a diverse and dynamic audience.

UT's Summer Statistics Institute (SSI) offers intensive four-day workshops on diverse topics from introductory data sciences to advanced statistics. Whether you are new to data analysis or a seasoned statistician, SSI provides a unique hands-on opportunity to acquire valuable skills directly from experts in the field. The UT Summer Statistics Institute (SSI) is open to 700 participants.

Courses span introductory statistics, statistical software, statistical methods and statistics applications. Each course will meet for four half-days, either mornings or afternoons, for a total of twelve hours. Instructors will post lectures, datasets, exercises, and course information on a website accessible to enrolled participants. There will be no examinations, and participants will receive certificates upon completion. Academic credit will not be issued. Please carefully check the specified prerequisite knowledge before enrolling in a course.

The Department of Statistics and Data Sciences now offers credit for educational professional development opportunities during our 2020 Summer Statistics Institute! Teachers currently working in PK–12 settings can earn 12 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) by attending one of our 25 exciting SSI courses held May 26-29, 2020.
