A Message From The President

Welcome to the DSI!  We hope that you enjoy this website, and will join us in our core mission of advancing the science and practice of decision making.  There are numerous ways that you can engage with us – publish in our journals, participate in our regional and global conferences, serve in our many developmental and executive roles, and communicate via our networks.  I urge you to explore the diverse opportunities that the DSI offers. 

There are many exciting changes happening at DSI, so much so that many of us are referring to the organization as “DSI 2.0.” We have a new home office, sensational new conference events, a new organizational structure, new discipline-based “colleges”, and we are continuing to augment this new website with features that provide value for all our members, students, fellows, sponsors, volunteers, etc.  DSI leaders are working hard to revitalize the institute and to develop new ways of fulfilling its mission.  Your suggestions and contributions are welcome!

We look forward to your participation and trust that you will enjoy and grow from your connections with the Decision Sciences.
