Data Sciences Academy

Welcome to the University of Arizona’s Data Sciences Academy. The Data Sciences Academy initiative will fund personnel and operations to support a university-wide endeavor to coordinate and lead in all areas of the data sciences and all aspects of university research, education and outreach.

The Data Science Institute provides essential technological assistance and training to the University partners.  They maintain a Data Science Research & Training (DSRT) group with regularly scheduled activities.

The Statistical Consulting Lab provides statistical advise and expertise to foster collaborations in experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, and grant preparation.

The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women in the field.

Through collaboration across the foundational disciplines - computer science, mathematics, and statistics – and in partnership with domain scientists, TRIPODS provides the infrastructure and environment so that data scientists at the foundations will become vital partners on the journey to the new frontiers of knowledge.
