The HBCU-DSC is inviting you to participate in their 1st Annual HBCU Data Science Consortium Data Science Celebration, to be held virtually on February 4-5, 2022. In particular, they are inviting undergraduate and graduate students to submit research posters to be presented during our Student Poster Session on Saturday, February 5, 2022
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.
