This virtual two-day workshop will be held February 19, 2021 from 9:00am – 3:00pm (EST) and February 20, 2021 from 10:00am – 1:00pm (EST).

The HBCU Data Science Consortium (HBCU-DSC) seeks to provide an accessible and beneficial platform within the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) community that will promote collaboration and support the “cross-pollination” of data analysis tools, data, and ideas. The goal of the HBCU-DSC is to develop a consortium of HBCU researchers and faculty, along with corporate and institutional allies, to increase collaboration, partnerships and funding in data science, data analytics and business analytics at HBCUs. An additional objective is to create an ongoing professional community of practice among HBCU faculty and researchers, to aid in the strengthening and creation of data science degree programs which will ultimately help increase the pipeline of students of color in the field.
