New consortium promotes rural computing | MSUtoday

A group of scientists from MSU have teamed up to advance research, outreach and collaboration on rural computing.

Launched in August 2021, the Rural Computing Research Consortium aims to unite faculty and students university-wide to increase the visibility of technology research in rural areas in Michigan, the Midwest and worldwide. Founder and director Jean Hardy, an assistant professor of media and information, said the consortium builds on MSU’s strength as a land grant institution by fostering opportunities in rural communities.

Housed in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences, the consortium will facilitate collaboration between campus units and secure MSU’s presence in the US as a premier place for rural computing research.
