The Data for Equitable Justice Lab

The Data for Equitable Justice Labgives students in the Master of Science in Social Policy + Data Anlytics for Social Policy Certificate program (MSSP+DA) an opportunity to analyze some of today’s most important social issues through data and, with faculty support, create a product for audiences well beyond our classrooms and campus. 

With guidance from the lab faculty, students develop a project – either individually or as part of a team – to examine a contemporary social policy or political issue through or on data or digital technology. Through these projects students produce an op-ed, blog post, podcast, academic article, short film, or other product that creates or contributes to contemporary discourse.
