Northwestern Data Science Initiative 

Northwestern University’s Data Science Initiative has its origin in a Lawrence B. Dumas Domain Dinner titled “The Possibilities of Big Data” that took place in May 2013. This was one of the best attended Domain Dinners in the two decade history of the Program. Due to such widespread interest across disciplines and an increasing number of established faculty wanting to participate, the Office of Research funded the Data Science Initiative in the Summer of 2015.
