Chancellor DuboisThank you for your interest in the Data Science Initiative (DSI) at UNC Charlotte.

The DSI is proposed as an industry-university-state partnership to broaden and deepen North Carolina's business analytics talent and stimulate strategic innovation. It will directly support high-end job creation and business investment in the Charlotte region and across the state.

The lead partners on the DSI, the College of Computing and Informatics and the Belk College of Business, each has a long, successful history of fostering strategic relationships with the business community. The initiative also includes the College of Health and Human Services and its emerging leadership in health informatics. This team will provide intellectual capital, academic programs and outreach activities to meet the needs of employers in the new data-driven economy, both in developing a highly trained workforce and in providing cutting-edge research to address challenges and opportunities in the rapidly changing business environment.

I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about the exciting programs planned through the Data Science Initiative. If you or your company would like to learn more or be involved in these efforts, please visit the Contact Us page to connect with the planning team.
