MOBILIZING THE HUB COMMUNITY OVERVIEW

The South Hub accelerates academic, industry, and community engagement in big data and data science by enabling networking and dialogue among stakeholders to assess their needs and increase the sharing of success stories, lessons learned, and best practices. In addition to the development of the Southern Region Data community, the South Hub also actively participates in the creation of a light-weight national coordination body through a National Coordination Committee (NCC) that allows the Hubs as a collective to respond to opportunities and scale insights across common goals.

 

IMPACT

  • 113+ yearly events and opportunities included in the newsletter by Hub partners
  • 150 virtual and in-person events that have attracted over 4700+ participants
  • 200+ All hands Meeting attendees

he South Big Data Innovation Hub sponsored five graduate students for a panel at the undergraduate conference “StatFest”, which is a one day conference aimed at encouraging undergraduate students from historically underrepresented groups (African American, Hispanic, Native Americans) to consider careers and graduate studies in the statistical and data sciences. Students participated as panelists for the 2017 StatFest held at Emory University to share their experiences of being a statistics major, and as a minority or persons of color in the field, to encourage undergraduate students to enter the statistics field.
