Description 
The Data Science for the Public Good program (DSPG) engages young scholars in finding solutions to some of the most pressing social issues of our time. DSPG fellows conduct research at the intersection of statistics, computation, and the social sciences to determine how information generated within every community can be leveraged to improve quality of life. DSPG fellows are able to diversify their expertise and form lasting professional connections by taking part in data-driven research projects collaborating with local, state, and federal sponsors. The students in the summer 2016 DSPG program will be presenting their research on a variety of issues facing our sponsors through posters.
The DSPG program is made possible through the support of several research organizations dedicated to serving the public good: Virginia Tech’s Global Forum for Urban and Regional Resilience (GFURR); American Statistical Association’s NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU); and sponsored research.
