Rosemary Pennington and regular panelists John Bailer, the founding and current Chair of Miami statistics Department, and Richard Campbell, former and founding Chair of Media, Journalism and Film recorded live in the Shriver Center at Miami University to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Miami University’s Department of Statistics.
