The 2021 Data Science for Social Good summer program brings together data scientists and domain researchers to work on focused, collaborative projects for societal benefit. This year’s projects will leverage data science approaches to address societal challenges in areas such as human services, public policy, health and safety, environmental impacts, transportation, accessibility, social justice, and urban informatics. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this program will be conducted remotely.

Each student will be part of a team working full-time (i.e. 40 hours/week) on an applied research project that has concrete social relevance and impact. Students are expected to work closely and collaboratively with team members for the duration of the 10-week program.
Projects may involve a range of stakeholders, including academic researchers, government officials, non-profit organizations, and the general public. In addition to project work, students participate in a wide range of data science tutorials, discussion-based workshops, and subject matter talks with experts from outside the program.
