Institutional Member Corner: Harvard Strategic Data Project

Strategic Data Project Fellow webinar graphic

SDP Fellows tackle critical data challenges in education for PK12 and postsecondary education organizations. Over the course of their two-year placement as full-time employees of these partner agencies, they receive training, support, and resources from the Harvard Strategic Data Project to execute key analytic projects. Former SDP Fellow, Arpi Karapetyan, was tasked by her placement organization, The Cowen Institute at Tulane University, to address a public data access issue in the city of New Orleans. Karapetyan cross-referenced state education data and local library records to establish a comprehensive database of all schools in New Orleans, where some 99 percent of all public-school students attend charter schools.

After Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005, all public schools were closed for several months and the local school district was dissolved. The state took over most schools, closed about half, and reopened or remanded the rest to charter-management organizations. This destabilizing event and decentralized model destroyed the historical record tracking city schools over time. A new comprehensive database of schools, school closures, and school transitions can democratize data access, contribute to the city’s historical record, and allow researchers to analyze the impacts of school closures and re-openings more completely. As Karapetyan notes, “It’s important to allow the public to understand what’s going on in their city.” 

Read more about Karapetyan's work in our most recent blog post, as well as other stories of impact, including SDP Fellows at post-secondary CTE institutions tackling projects about tracking student outcomes and understanding local employer needs.

If you're looking to take the next step in your career, consider applying to become a Strategic Data Project Fellow. The next application deadline is January 18, 2023. Learn more by visiting our website or joining an upcoming informational webinar.

Institutional Member Corner: NYU Steinhardt

Lauren Mims, NYU SteinhardtNYU Steinhardt's Lauren Mims, assistant professor of applied psychology, has been awarded a $1.05 million grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Minority Health to help support the mental health of, and prevent suicide in, Black youth.

This research is a direct response to a call set forth in 2019 by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to help curtail the worrying rise in suicide rates for Black children and teenagers. Data from a report released by the CBC Taskforce on Black Youth Suicide and Mental Health shows that suicide is the second leading cause of death for Black youth ages ten to nineteen years old, and that the suicide death rate among Black youth is increasing faster than for any other racial or ethnic group. Learn more about this impactful research. 

To get the latest on NYU Steinhardt's emerging research like the above, partnerships, and major education news, sign up to receive four newsletters a year and follow us on TwitterLinkedIn, and Facebook.
