Welcome! We’d love to have you join us. Here are some ways to get involved:

Upcoming Events

Join us at any of our upcoming events to learn more about SUDS and about the intersection of data and the public sphere. We’d love to hear if you have an idea for an event, or if you have a club or organization that would like to partner with us. Email us at info@suds-cmu.org.

Submit your research for the SUDS Blog

Do you have a research project that focuses on urban issues, civic management, or other public policies? Do you use civic or open data sources? Are you interested in showcasing this work on a higher-profile, public platform and impressing employers by linking to it from your CV or LinkedIn?

One of SUDS’ main products is our blog that features original student research. We hope the blog will raise awareness of interesting topics in urban data research and applications, aggregate and highlight the great work coming from CMU on these topics, and aid students’ professional development by providing a higher-profile platform to publish and link to their work.

See our submission guidelines here.
