In 2016 Data Carpentry drafted its vision and mission statements to direct the organization’s work, activities and future planning.

Data Carpentry Vision

Building communities teaching universal data literacy

Data Carpentry Mission

Data Carpentry trains researchers in the core data skills for efficient, shareable, and reproducible research practices. We run accessible, inclusive training workshops; teach openly available, high-quality, domain-tailored lessons; and foster an active, inclusive, diverse instructor community that promotes and models reproducible research as a community norm.
