ADSA Membership

Become a Member

Membership in ADSA is open to organizations, institutions, and individuals engaged in data science in higher education or interested in supporting academic data science from adjacent sectors.  Government, non-profit, and industry organizations: Please consider supporting ADSA with Event Sponsorships. We encourage membership in ADSA to signal support of our mission, vision, and values.  We believe strongly that together we can shape the future of data science for the better and create a community of researchers and educators who take responsibility for a just, equitable future where data science approaches are thoughtfully applied in all domains for the benefit of all. ADSA members are invited to contribute to community efforts through participation in our annual events, interest groups, working groups, information sharing, and other initiatives. 

ADSA activities are generally open to members and non-members alike, but individual and institutional members do have special benefits and opportunities.  

Note: Annual membership follows a typical academic fiscal year: July 1st - June 30th.

Membership FAQ

What do you mean by “Institution”? 

Because we know that some organizations house multiple data science departments, institutes, programs, and initiatives that would like to retain their individual identity, we offer institutional membership at a variety of levels. If your university or college would like a single membership (shared single member benefits), you may pool your resources for said membership. On the other hand, if multiple units within your university or college would like to retain their identities in ADSA materials (such as the Member Book) and the ADSA website, those individual units may opt for their own memberships. Non-academic entities are encouraged to support ADSA through our Sponsorships program. 

What if institutional membership is too expensive?

If institutional membership cost is prohibitive, consider individual membership. Individual members may opt-in to a member directory. We will post a list of institutions with individual members on our website.
