Purdue President Mitch Daniels includes the Integrative Data Science Initiative as part of the Purdue Moves Strategy and identifies private-sector partnerships as critical to success.

“Corporations foresee a serious shortfall of talent and seek strategies for company-wide integration of their data assets. Those who come alongside us as partners will be best positioned to access the talent and innovations of Purdue’s students and faculty.”

— President Daniels
