Earth Lab Earth Analytics Education Initiative at CU Boulder
The Earth Lab Earth Analytics Education Initiative at the University of Colorado -- Boulder is building an innovative program that provides core in-market demand technical skills at the intersection of Earth and data science to undergraduate, graduate and professional students. The program includes formal courses, workshops, career development events with industry partners, paid undergraduate internships, an open online learning portal with global reach, and a professional certificate in Earth data analytics, one of the first of its kind in the country. We are committed to expanding the reach of Earth data science education for students across varying academic, professional, socio-economic and geographic dimensions to ensure broad accessibility to novel curriculum. All courses are offered through both online and traditional options, allowing students to participate in-person, online in real-time, or asynchronously by reviewing materials at their own pace.
A number of organizations and initiatives currently support diversity, equity, and inclusion across data science, environmental science, and related fields through training, mentoring, and networking opportunities. This collection will provide links and descriptions of those organizations and/or initiatives to increase awareness among our members.
