The UA has created a Center for Digital Society and Data Studies to address some of the major challenges and disciplinary divides that data have introduced.

With the digital age emerging at an increasingly fast speed, issues with digitizing technology, data capabilities and social media technologies are now being addressed with a new center. Catherine Brooks, director for the center, said the UA is already doing this sort of work. “The School of Information at the university is already an interdisciplinary place where thinkers, programmers and scientists explore and address today’s big questions and problems relative to information, analytic tools and today’s societal issues,” Brooks said.
