Research & Scholarship

Youth Street MinistriesUniversity of Washington Information School researchers help people more effectively use information to discover, learn, innovate, solve problems, have fun, and make a better world. We accomplish this by conducting meaningful and rigorous research on the relationship among people, information, and technology. Our research efforts respond to significant, real-world challenges and make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities.

Faculty, students, and partners work collaboratively on research projects and share their results through published works, conference presentations, symposia and other events. The research groups housed within the iSchool are internationally-recognized hubs for innovative scholarship and research.
