To enable excellence in data science scholarship and education at Tufts.


About graphic

Data sciences enable transformative research in many disciplines. However, initiating and sustaining such work can be difficult and needs partners and expertise that may be difficult to find. The scope, challenges and outcomes requires active and engaged partnerships among disciplinary and data scientists that are often hard to form and sustain. 

Data science related expertise is a core skill in most organizations and both Tufts’ current students and many in the communities Tufts serves need access to high quality education and training in these domains.

The Data Intensive Studies Center (DISC) will enable Tufts scholars and students to address these needs.



DISC will be sustaining institutionalizing TRIPODs initiatives. Learn more about TRIPODs activities at Tufts.
