The goal of the Coleridge Initiative at NYU is to use data to transform the way governments access and use data for the social good. We are a fast-growing university-based startup that has already created dozens of pilot projects, worked with over 100 agencies - federal, state and local - and trained over 250 people. Our program directors - Julia Lane, Rayid Ghani, and Frauke Kreuter - have designed and implemented training programs, research projects and a secure data facility that are attracting national attention, including the Commission on Evidence Based Policy and the Federal Data Strategy. The goal of the project is to build new capacity to enable government agency staff to use data and collaborate on projects to improve policy.
Our Team Our team works with government agencies to break down data barriers around confidential data. We do this in two ways. We have developed a secure environment for data, and are building new tools for data stewardship, data discovery and collaboration with some of the top scientists in the nation. We work with government agencies to (1) identify critical agency problems, (2) train staff to solve them, and (3) create products that have value.
