A full description of programs and requirements, with syllabi for exams, is available from the department office or on its Web site at *www.math.utoledo.edu**.* The paragraphs below represent a synopsis of the essential elements.

The mission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is to prepare students for careers or further academic programs in mathematics, statistics, actuarial science or data science. To that end we offer academic programs in these fields at bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. Via these programs, students are enabled to establish careers in education, business, industry and government. Students at advanced levels graduate with ability to independently investigate mathematical and statistical problems at the forefront of our discipline. The department is also committed to fostering success for all students across the university by offering courses in mathematics that enhance their foundations in quantitative skills for the wide range of their collegiate coursework as well as critical life skills after they graduate. Finally, the department is committed to enhancing the university’s research profile and capabilities by offering assistance in statistics and mathematics to research faculty and students across the campus.

**General description**

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is a comprehensive academic unit offering a full range of programs across the disciplines and at all academic levels. We have 19 tenure-track faculty and 20 teaching faculty in the position of lecturer, along with several faculty in visiting and other part-time positions. We have graduate students at all levels numbering approximately 45. In addition to pure and applied mathematics and statistics at all levels, we also offer undergraduate programs in actuarial science, mathematics with computer science, and data science. Our Statistical Consulting Service provides assistance to researchers across the campus and the community. Our department is fully engaged with the Ohio department of Higher Education and the public institutions of higher education in Ohio in the Ohio Math Initiative. In the context of that initiative and other efforts, we are fully committed to fostering student success across the campus.
