Computerworld Laureate

Congratulations to the Imagining the Internet Center and its director, Professor Janna Anderson of the School of Communications, for being named a laureate in the 2011 Computerworld Honors Program. It recognizes the use of information technology to promote positive social, economic and educational change.

The Imagining the Internet Center was selected as a laureate in the education and training category from more than 1,000 nominations. Laureates will gather for a black-tie awards gala on June 20 in Washington, D.C. At the ceremony, five laureates in each category will be named finalists for a 21st Century Achievement Award.

The center, an initiative of the School of Communications, admirably involves students in its activities. For example, students travel abroad each year to cover the Internet Governance Forum under the direction of a faculty member. Their coverage of these global events both serves the public good and can be a transformative experience for the students.
