I am part of the University-Wide Data Science Program, funded by the President's and Provost's Fund for Innovation and Excellence. The goal is to create a Data Science BS (Stats department), and nine associated minors across the university.
My responsibilities included: 1) Being a consultant for the math background of the major. 2) Participating in weekly meetings in which we put together and revised the proposal. 3) Drafting a Math Minor in "Computational Mathematics & Analytics" as part of the proposal
As this was funded, my responsibilities in the future will entail creating the above-mentioned minor and guiding it through the various committees.
Our proposal was funded! The first objective is to form the major, and then to create each of the minors.
