Economics Alumni Serve as DataLab Instructors

Sewanee Economics Alumni Joe Brew C’08 and Ben Brew C‘12 returned to The Mountain this past summer to serve as instructors in the newly launched Sewanee DataLab. Inspired by Rayid Ghani’s C’99 original DataLab at the University of Chicago, the Sewanee DataLab’s first summer institute allowed 18 aspiring social change makers to learn marketable data skills while working on projects designed to generate positive social change.
