WHAT IS INFORMATICS+?

This initiative is building the new talent engine for the region in data, media and technology. This new center will formally launch in September 2019 with three foci:
 
·     Talent Development: K-12 pipeline, career readiness, professional training, and symposia.
·     Academic Integration: Interlinking degree programs with experiential learning.
·     Regional and Global Engagement: Bringing real word research, development, and creative work into the classroom and to student-faculty teams.
 
These foci are designed to amplify the impact of NKU's new strategic framework, Success By Design, with its pillars of access, completion, and career and community engagement.  
 
With its broader scope and new foci, the Informatics+ initiative will
supersede the former Center for Applied Informatics and become its even bolder
successor.

HOW DO I ENGAGE NKU
STUDENTS AND FACULTY
ON INFORMATICS PROJECTS?

The new center will have two avenues for project work beginning in the Fall of 2019:
 
1.    The center will be able to take on a select portfolio of high-impact innovative regional and global projects that require a high level of sophistication. These will be handled by faculty-led student teams, often with corporate partners.
 
2.    The center will also take on a larger set of basic small-scale projects as a means for beginning Informatics students to get exposure to real-world work as part of the college's professionalization courses. This serves as a precursor to traditional co-op and internship programs to which students will quickly progress.
 
Some projects that had been initiated under the former Center for Applied Informatics will transition to this new center, and others will be brought to conclusion during the remaining months of 2019.
