iSchoolers in the News
Informatics student Nicole Kuhn is supporting her four children as she pursues her degree at the iSchool. An iSchool scholarship has been a big help to Kuhn, who will be the first in her family to earn an undergraduate degree. We profiled her in a story on our website.
As our first professor of practice, Susan Hildreth has shaped the role for the school. We wrote about how her professional experience has translated to the classroom.
Assistant Professor Jevin West and Biology colleague Carl Bergstrom went on KING-TV’s “New Day Northwest” to talk about the Cambridge Analytica scandal and how Facebook manages data.
