University of Miami Institute for Data Science & Computing Vision and Mission

Vision + Mission


Our vision is to solve pressing societal challenges and thus advance well-being by enabling data science research, education and training, and application, both inside and outside the University.



Our mission is to catalyze data-intensive research across the University of Miami focused on the needs of the region and to enhance data science understanding among our students and the public, by leveraging state-of-the-art resources and enabling novel interdisciplinary collaborations across UM and with industry partners.

The Institute operates at three levels:

  • Enhancing the use of data and computational methods in existing disciplines at the University of Miami.
  • Defining new knowledge areas and disciplines that can take advantage of data and computation.
  • Helping to educate the public at large about intelligent and responsible use of data by developing programs at all educational levels.
