UMs² (University of Manitoba Statistics Students)
The primary goal of University of Manitoba Statistics Students (UMs²) is to act as a platform to connect statistics students of all levels at the University of Manitoba. UMs² aims to provide students with valuable networks and friendships during their time as a student. A secondary goal (as a result of the primary goal) of UMs² is to help its members to build confidence-inspiring skills that are not typically developed in the classroom including leadership, management, public speaking, communication, and teamwork. As technical and analytical skills are learned in the classroom, students who are involved with UMs² experience other soft skills that they may eventually need in the workplace. To help build these skills, a long-term vision of UMs² is set to eventually start a scholarship that is self-sustainable to award select students each year.
Services provided include:
- Furnished club room
- Monthly club events
- Review sessions for introductory level courses
- A group of awesome individuals to listen, cry, and celebrate with!
