Abstract:The School of Information Sciences founded the Center for Digital Inclusion (CDI) in 2011 to foster inclusive and sustainable societies through research, teaching, and public engagement about information and communication technologies (ICT) and their impacts on communities, organizations, and governments. CDI was informed by the pathbreaking work of Prairienet and the Community Informatics Initiative, two previous instantiations of engaged scholarship at the School. CDI provided an intellectual home to a broad sector of faculty, staff and students who worked in this area, bringing together interest in information and society, community informatics and human-centered computing. CDI’s portfolio of grants focused on building and operating next generation broadband networks, developing new models of digital and information literacy training, and examining the social and economic impact of ICTs. This report summarizes and highlights CDI’s activities from 2012 to 2018, with short sections related to the Community Informatics Initiative and Prairienet and an appendix of administrative and CDI staff.
