American Family Insurance donates $20M to data science education

Student interest in computer, research and data science education has increased in recent years. Many campuses lack the instructors, even the space, to accommodate the rising demand.

Thankfully, UW-Madison looks to close the gap with a recent gift from American Family Insurance. Half of the $20 million donation will endow the American Family Insurance Data Science Institute, to be located in the McArdle Cancer Research Building. The other half will go to hiring faculty, supporting graduate student projects and more.

UW-Madison’s computer science department ranked 13th in 2018; with resources to meet demand, this number will surely rise.
