Undergraduate Data Science and Diversity at Purdue University
TimeThursday, August 110:30am - 11am
DescriptionThe vision of Purdue University's Integrative Data Science Initiative is to be at the forefront of advancing data science-enabled research and education. Tightly coupling theory, discovery, and applications, while providing students with an integrated data science-fluent campus ecosystem, this initiative is designed for college graduates at Purdue University to have Big Data experiences in academics. Faculty and staff of the university assist students through curriculum, research, residential life and professional development.
In this paper, we present the framework for this initiative, which includes outlining course offerings, describing the residential living communities and workforce development on campus. We will finish by describing our initial successes.
