Connecticut Data Science Lab is organized as a standing
interest/study group in the form of a student organization,
with a faculty advisory board providing training in data
manipulation, programming, statistical modeling, variable
engineering, model selection/validation, and communication
about the results. Specific functions are as follows.

- Provide a credited course about Statistics in Data
Science, where students learn through collaboratively
solving real-world data science problems under the guidance
of faculty instructors.
- Maintain an open-source database of case studies in Data
Science, and corresponding "toolbox" available for
download.
- Maintain a department-wide (possibly campus-wide in the
future) data science support through a standing
committee.
