About Us

stride chartSTRIDE is an innovative training program that provides STEM graduate students with unique interdisciplinary skills to assist, create, and eventually lead in the translation of complex data-enabled research into informed decisions and sound policies.

In addition to training in cutting-edge data analytics and visualization, STRIDE includes the trans-disciplinary skills of decision support including science communication, understanding the perspectives of various stakeholders, and translating scientific uncertainty, that are too often not explicitly taught.

This end-to-end training program aims to transcend traditional graduate education by integrating multiple disciplines and novel training elements that span spatial data, advanced visual data analytics, high-performance and data-centric computing, a science discipline, communication including interpersonal skills and modern media, decision making, and relevant internships.

The departments involved are: Applied Math, Biomedical InformaticsComputer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE)Ecology & Evolution, JournalismMarine and Atmospheric Sciences, Public Health, and Technology & Society

The centers/institutes involved are: IACS, Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC), Alda Center for Communicating Science, Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT), C enter for Smart Energy Technologies (SET)Center for Visual Computing (CVC), and Center for Inclusive Education (CIE).
