Data Science For Sustainable Development

Data Science for Sustainable Development (DSSD) is an organization committed to providing technical services to nonprofits, government agencies, and NGOs with limited technological resources and capacity. Founded by alumni and current students at William & Mary, the organization’s roots began at the Geospatial Evaluation and Observations Lab (geoLab) within the Department of Applied Science. There, the team fostered the ideologies of innovation through interdisciplinary collaboration, acknowledgement for open-source technical knowledge, and the desire to provide valuable technical solutions in a humanitarian and development context. Our volunteer-based mission is rooted in a desire to give all organizations equal access to available data and actionable insights. The Madison branch is a charter of the national organization designed to support their mission.
