As of April 21, 2021, the American Statistical Association is now a full member of CSAB (https://csab.org/), joining the world’s two largest professional and technical societies for computing, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS). As the lead ABET member society for computing, CSAB is responsible for developing accreditation criteria for a number of programs including Data Science. Programs in data science and data analytics, which have previously not fallen under ABET’s accreditation umbrella, will soon be eligible for ABET accreditation. There are two distinct ABET groups working on data science program accreditation criteria - the Applied and Natural Sciences Accreditation Commission (ANSAC) and Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC). This session will provide an update on the process and will discuss the drafting of the criteria. The session will be interactive by design to provide the participants an opportunity to share their insights and ask questions.

Chairs: Donna LaLonde (American Statistical Association), Dave Hunter (Penn State and ASA), and Kathy Ensor (Rice University and ASA)
