  • UA Creates Center for Digital Society and Data Studies

    “One of the reasons the School of Information needed a center focused on data, digital culture, innovation, and social behavior was because the school is already a part of these larger conversations happening across disciplines,” said Catherine Brooks, an assistant professor of information and communication and the director of the new center.
