Data Science for Social Good

The Florida Data Science for Social Good (FL-DSSG) program is an intensive 12-week internship that invites University of North Florida (UNF) students and students from other institutions of higher learning to tackle data-rich projects that have the potential for substantial social impact. The FL-DSSG program supports students from multiple disciplines, including psychology, mathematics, computing, public policy, and others. Results from the data science projects are shared with local non-profit organizations in the Northeast Florida area in August at The Big Reveal Event. The FL-DSSG program is supported by the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida and the University of North Florida. The program is spearheaded by two UNF faculty, Dr. Dan Richard in the Department of Psychology and Dr. Karthikeyan Umapathy in the College of Computing.
