Community Data Forum

Every April, students, faculty, administrators and community partners gather at Cal State LA for the Big Data Community Forum. The forum highlights student projects, research posters and story maps from spring semester classes as part of the University’s Big Data project.

In April 2019, 28 non-profit organizations participated in the spring cohort of the project and were paired with students for their respective research projects. The winning projects included topics on gentrification in El Serano, crimes and activities in Hollywood, the South LA housing crisis, oil drilling, affordable housing, and homelessness.
