Partnerships are instrumental to the iSchool’s tremendous success, both locally and internationally.
- Grants from foundations and private industry fund critical information research that benefits people around the globe and students here at home
- Organizations hire iSchool graduates, but also provide important internships to students that enable them to put theory into practice
- iSchool faculty work with colleagues across multiple disciplines at UW and other universities to make their scholarship stronger
- The UW iSchool is part of a growing iSchool movement that involves dozens of universities in multiple countries, meeting annually at the iConference to share the latest research
iSchool partnerships are built around common areas of interest – research funding, project based collaborations, student recruitment and engagement, and continuing education. If you are interested in exploring partnership opportunities, please contact Andy Wilmer, director of corporate and foundation relations.
