The Data Lab

At the Connolly Alexander Institute for Data Science (CAIDS), we work with undergraduate and graduate students who play a pivotal role in shaping the data literacy landscape at Tulane University. 

Within the Data Lab at the Connolly Alexander Institute for Data Science (CAIDS), we build interdisciplinary and equity-minded data communities through collaboration and mutual support. At CAIDS, we offer three dynamic student programs designed to cultivate a community of data-driven thinkers and users. Through these opportunities, we work to foster a campus environment where data becomes accessible, relevant, and a driving force for positive change.

The Data Lab's Objectives

  1. Build supportive interdisciplinary equity-minded data communities for undergraduate and graduate students at Tulane University through scholarship, collaboration, mentorship, and networking.
  2. Make data work accessible and relevant for technical and non-technical majors and fields. 
  3. Explore and apply data equity frameworks to build enriching data communities based on mutual support. (e.g., anti-racist, queer, feminist, social justice pedagogies and epistemologies).
  4. Become a maker of open-sourced technical and scholarly knowledge about data by producing project deliverables, product reviews, project manuals, and scholarship. 

Whether you are a seasoned tech enthusiast or a novice interested in learning about data, these paid opportunities can help you build a diverse portfolio and valuable skills.
