Goal: ALL-SPICE proposes efforts to harness the data revolution to support sustainability, economic development, and social justice in the Hawai'i-Pacific region.

ALL-SPICE, led by Chaminade University of Honolulu with partners at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center, and the University of Hawai'i, will focus on the development of regional data science capacity in support of Hawai'i-Pacific progress toward the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

ALL-SPICE will build educational and research capacity in data science for community impact in Hawai'i and the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI), adapting data science curriculum for online deployment to reach rural, neighbor island, and USAPI participants, enhancing faculty research capacity in data science, developing new undergraduate data science research experiences, and producing new Pacific-focused data science courses for broad deployment across the Alliance. Additionally, ALL-SPICE will curate a "Wayfinding to Data" (W2D) portfolio of data science training opportunities spanning K–20 and targeting marginalized populations.
