Data-driven discovery

Liberal Arts and Sciences thrives in data-rich environments

Science and research in LAS is revolutionary because it is data-driven. The tools we develop to analyze data connect disciplines across campus while introducing departments to the complexities of large data sets. The beauty of big data analytics is that it doesn’t always give you answers – many times, it sparks more questions before helping to provide answers.

Exploring data with animation

Heike Hofmann uses different tools to visualize big data

All data tell a story, but when observations number in the millions or more, the story can be harder to find. While mathematical differences can guide investigation of smaller data sets, large data sets require different tools. Heike Hofmann, professor of statistics, is an expert at exploring large data sets through images and animations that tell stories numbers alone simply can’t.

From the Dean: Spring 2014

In his installation address, President Steven Leath promised to hire 200 new faculty in his first two full years on campus. LAS had already planned for a very active hiring season, and with nine additional positions supported by new resources from the President’s Initia- tive on High Impact Hiring, we are searching for 35 new colleagues. Across all colleges, well over 100 searches are currently in progress.

‘J-FAST’ provided better care for at-risk youth in Iowa

Implementing less-invasive strategies to aide families

J-FAST’s goal was to implement less invasive strategies to respond to the needs of multisystem-involved youth. Community health service providers in Linn County agreed to each take one day of the week to see any child who needed an emergency room psychiatric evaluation. Afterward, the child would receive nine months of follow-up service from a case manager who provided links to recommended services, preventing further reliance on emergency rooms.
