A Program Bringing Data Science to Your Campus

The South Big Data Innovation Hub is excited to launch the 2018 DataUp Program as part of our Keeping Data Science Broad Series. DataUp will offer hands-on training for instructor teams at minority-serving institutions, community colleges, and 4-year liberal arts colleges to increase the capacity for data science instruction across the South. 

Recipients of DataUp will receive one 2-day data science workshop hosted on their campus for 15 -30 people (workshop fees waived and instructors provided). Also, accepted team members will receive travel funding to attend an in-person train-the-trainers workshop in Atlanta, GA in November 2018. After the training, teams will be certified to (and expected to) teach a workshop (in collaboration with the South Hub and the Carpentries) in their local region by December 2019.
