Hi everyone,


This week at the Applied Statistics Workshop we will be welcoming Victoria Liublinska, Liam Schwartz, and their colleagues from the Office of Institutional Research at Harvard University.  They will be presenting work entitled "Data, Data Science, and The Research University."  Please find their abstract below and on the website<http://projects.iq.harvard.edu/applied.stats.workshop-gov3009/home>.


As usual, we will meet in CGIS Knafel room 354 at noon and lunch will be provided.  See you all there!

Title: "Data, Data Science, and The Research University"


Abstract:  In our talk we will discuss some of the challenges that may arise while developing a "data science" approach to institutional research in the university setting. Despite these hurdles, with improved data governance and availability, a team with the right skills and outlook, and the support of senior leadership, the transition from a more traditional institutional research function to one representing a data science perspective is not only possible, but natural. We will  give several examples of analytical projects carried out by Harvard University's Office of Institutional Research on issues that address strategic questions for the University.
