Data Science Subcommittee

Chair: Rachel Saidi (rachel.saidi@montgomerycollege.edu)

The Data Science Subcommittee hopes to foster meaningful connections among both faculty who would like to develop a data science program at their institution as well those who already have these programs. Because Data Science and Data Analytics is vastly different at each school, we hope to facilitate ways members can help each other to establish best practices for 1. certificates and degrees, 2. transfer agreements to four-year institutions, 3. pathways to career opportunities, and 4. connections to local government and industry partners.
