Good people, using good data, fighting for better policy
The Data for Equitable Justice Lab is a new venture from Penn’s School of Social Policy & Practice that gives our Masters students an opportunity analyze some of today’s most important social issues through data and, with faculty support, create a product for audiences well beyond our classrooms and campus.
With guidance from the lab faculty, students develop a project – either individually or as part of a team – to examine a contemporary social policy or political issue through or on data or digital technology. Through these projects students will produce an op-ed, blog post, podcast, academic article, short film, or other product of your choosing that creates or contributes to contemporary discourse. We have a group of eager and brilliant students in our current cohort, and are excited to expand the Lab into the SP2 curriculum beginning in the fall of 2018.
