A university-wide initiative placing Tufts at the forefront of data science

Recent advances in data science have created exciting opportunities to understand and shape the world around us using large and complex stores of information. As a research-driven university deeply committed to the liberal arts, Tufts is well positioned to lead this growing field and produce insights and data-driven tools to transform science, engineering, humanities, and the arts.

The Data Intensive Study Center (DISC) provides a focal point for interdisciplinary data science research and pedagogy across Tufts. DISC will build on existing strengths such as computational biology, cybersecurity and digital humanities; spur new research and applications; and integrate data literacy and data science into Tufts education.

Your support keeps Tufts at the forefront of data science and helps students build skills that are in high demand across the professional spectrum. Make a gift today.
