2020 Data Science Institution Updates

As Data Science emerges as a new field, academic institutions around the world are following different routes toward establishing organizational units for the critical education and scholarship. There are several options for housing data science efforts on academic campuses (eg: Program, Department, Center, Institute, College) reflecting the diverse base of the scholars and the intrinsic interdisciplinarity of the field. Each institution has its own unique path and story to tell, with challenges faced and overcome.

Below are brief updates from a selection of institutions participating in the 2020 Data Science Leadership Summit. These institutions have shared their stories - including highs, lows, successes, and challenges - in the hope that this sharing will benefit the academic community as we continue to build and transform the field of data science.
