The University of Virginia, through the largest gift in the University’s history, has the opportunity to play a national and international leadership role in data science training, research, and service by expanding the already successful Data Science Institute (DSI) to become a School of Data Science (SDS).

The new School will be built from the foundation of the Data Science Institute. Here is our vision for the School of Data Science, developed by DSI Director Philip Bourne, and a plan for the future.
