The Center for Spatial Data Science hosts a few initiatives that support individuals doing computational work in the social sciences.

The Carpentries

We have held a Carpentries Platinum Membership and support the UChicago Carpentries Community.

The Working Group on Analytics, Computation, and Education

The Working Group on Analytics, Computation, and Education is a group of faculty and staff who meet once a month to discuss best practices in teaching computation. If you are actively teaching computation at the university, you may wish to get involved in this community of practice.
