We believe in a just, equitable future where data science approaches are thoughtfully applied in all domains for the benefit of all.



The Academic Data Science Alliance (ADSA) is a community of leaders, researchers, and educators who thoughtfully integrate data science and AI best practices in higher education. Our members connect and share their data-intensive approaches and responsible applications.
