Congratulations to Dr. Jeff Goldsmith on his 2024 Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching!

The Presidential Awards for Outstanding Teaching were established in 1996 to honor excellence in teaching at the University. 5 awards are conferred to faculty and 3 awards are conferred to graduate student instructors each year. The Columbia community is invited to submit nominations, and these are reviewed by selection committees comprised of both faculty and students, including prior winners. From this pool of hundreds of nominations, a select group of finalists are chosen. Their departments are asked to prepare dossiers that illustrate their commitment to promoting intellectual development, innovation in pedagogy and design, commitment to inclusivity and diversity in the classroom, and a dedication and enthusiasm for teaching.

Jeff is a wonderful person, teacher, and colleague we are grateful to have in our department, and we are very happy to congratulate him on this well-earned recognition!

This past Friday was our 2024 Biostatistics Practicum/APEX Symposium, where our graduating Master’s students presented their findings from their culminating experiential learning projects. From Cancer Research to Bayesian Statistics, students showed their contributions in a variety of key topics. Whether in the labs of professors at CUIMC or working in companies such as Pfizer, students put their skills to work. Students and faculty also heard from Nadiya Pavlishyn (MS '19) as our symposium keynote speaker.

We’re so proud of all of our students and are excited to see where their valuable insights take them in building a better future through public health. Congratulations to the Class of 2024!
