Data Community

Welcome to the University of Exeter's Data Community!

Our vision is to ensure our staff and students have the data literacy skills needed to thrive within an ever-evolving digital workspace. We aim to bring together a diverse range of data experts and consumers from across the University to share our skills and expertise. There will be regular training events and activities, a forum for sharing ideas, networking opportunities, and maybe even some cake!

Our community is open to anyone at the University who works with data (i.e. everyone!) and we'd love for you to get involved.

Learn more about our Data Community on our Sharepoint page and read this blog on Digital Buzz for even more information on what to expect.
