Sewanee DataLab aims to make a difference in communities
"The new program is a collaboration between the University’s Office of Civic Engagement, Career Center, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, and Sewanee's Integrated Program in the Environment. Funded by a grant from innovative think tank New America, the DataLab at Sewanee breaks ground in higher education. The university is the only traditional liberal arts college supporting New America’s Public Interest Technology University Network that is developing a career path for undergraduates in data science for the public good." - via University of the South
