NSDC Chapter Central
The National Student Data Corps Chapters provide a community of support for data science learners of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels.
Each National Student Data Corps (NSDC) Chapter will provide resources and opportunities for students to learn data science, with a special focus on underserved institutions, students, and communities. Chapter members will benefit from learning resources, mentorship, research and career opportunities to launch their data science journeys.
