United HealthGroup Partners to Launch Data Science Initiative
The five-year, $8.25 million investment by UnitedHealth Group is part of an ambitious collaboration with AUCC and its member institutions to launch of the AUCC Data Science Initiative, which will offer technical classes for students who want to specialize in data science or learn data analysis to give them a competitive edge when they look for jobs in their field of study.
“The Data Science Initiative has the potential to make the Atlanta University Center Consortium a national resource for experts in data analytics. This program will not only produce talented data scientists who will be leaders in their fields, but increasing the number of degree offerings with data science competencies at HBCUs will assist in diversifying a career field that is currently made up of less than 7% of under-represented minorities.”
— Dr. Valerie Montgomery Rice, president and dean of Morehouse School of Medicine
