Leveraging Data Analytics for Columbia Athletics
We are a Division-I Athletics program at an Ivy League academic institution—with the academic resources available to us, we want to be at the forefront of using data analytics to help our student-athletes succeed. In a partnership with the Columbia Sports Management program, we have initiated a Data Analytics project with a graduate student intern from the program. Dr. Brent Walker, Associate Athletics Director of Championship Performance, is overseeing this project, with goals around sport-specific competitive performance, recruiting and retaining student-athletes, and enhancing the student-athlete experience and well-being. To fund this new position, we are looking to raise $20,000. The Data Analytics project is one of the many initiatives and resources funded through The Fund for Excellence. Your gift to The Fund for Excellence will support the Data Analytics project and the many other needs of our student-athletes.
This project runs through midnight on Columbia Giving Day, 10/26/16.
