The University of Michigan (U-M) will spend $100 million over the next five years to enhance the opportunities for students and faculty to take advantage of big data.

With the investment in Michigan’s Data Science Initiative (DSI), the university will:

  • Hire 35 additional faculty members and engage more existing faculty in the initiative;
  • Support interdisciplinary data-related research initiatives;
  • Provide new academic programs for students interested in data science;
  • Expand its research computing capacity;
  • Strengthen data management storage, analytics and training resources; and
  • Establish the Michigan Institute for Data Science.
