Strive Partnership Summer Internship
The Greater Cincinnati Regional Data Portal is a central and sustainable online center to house community data and information on key subject areas including demographics, economy, education, poverty, health, arts, environment, and others.
The Strive Partnership is working with UC, United Way, NKU, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Health Foundation, Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation and others to create a robust regional community data portal to serve as a central access point for general audiences to access and use data about the community in their own work.
The collaboration is constructing a data portal that will provide a unified gateway to the information distributed by some of the largest data providers in our region. The portal will allow the collaboration to shift their individual resources from a static environment to a dynamic environment that emphasizes user-driven data discovery.
