What is an iSchool?
We are a community of professionals focused on diverse areas of expertise relating to the study of information and its use by people and organizations.
We prepare information leaders. We research the problems and opportunities of information. We design solutions to information challenges. We make information work.
We are inspired by information. We want to help people achieve their potential and harness the capacity of information as an agent for positive change.
We conduct rigorous research, create challenging academic programs, tackle key social and technical problems in the information field and strengthen the link between users of information and designers of information systems.
