The ASA (American Statistical Association) has been working in collaboration with the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) on developing a data science curriculum for Two Year Colleges. Part of this development is the need to understand the private-sector demand for two-year college data science graduates and the prevalence of the need to invest in the continuing education of existing employees for gap-filling critical skills shortages in “knowledge workers”.

By taking this survey, participating in a workshop/summit or — especially — submitting a letter of collaboration you will be helping to prepare your organization and our combined workforce meet the challenges of succeeding in an increasingly data-driven world.
