2021: Computational Social Science

The Center for Research Computing hosted eight undergraduate students as part of the Computational Social Science Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) summer program. The participants spent 8 weeks working collaboratively with expert mentors on computational social science projects at the University of Notre Dame. Each student was paired with a research project in their area of interest. This REU training environment aids in developing multidisciplinary social scientists with the appropriate expertise to answer the computational social science data growth challenges and opportunities.
