Faculty Needed for Research Study on Data Literacy in Community Colleges

We are inviting community college faculty to participate in an online interview for the research study titled “Student Data Literacy Needs in Community Colleges,” which is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The purpose of this study is to gather insights from faculty regarding the current data literacy landscape and its impact on community college education.

Your perspectives and experiences are crucial in helping us understand the evolving role of data literacy in community college settings. The interviews will be conducted via Zoom and are expected to last approximately 60 minutes. As a token of appreciation, each participant will receive a $75 Amazon e-gift card.

If you are interested in contributing to this research study, please contact us via email at We greatly value your expertise and look forward to hearing from you.
