NKU Informatics Center Honored for Excellence and Innovation
The Northern Kentucky University Center for Applied Informatics was awarded an inaugural Excellence and Innovation Award for Regional and Economic Development from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The CAI Virtual Co-op Program was seen as a “model for institutions seeking ways to advance practices in the field.”
Dean Maureen Doyle and CAI Executive Director and NKU Associate Provost for information technology Tim Ferguson accepted the award in Washington, D.C. “The virtual co-op program provides students with resumé building opportunities that complements their academic careers,” Ferguson said. “Our students work on innovative and real world business solutions that have a major impact on the partner organization’s success.”
The Center for Applied Informatics is the outreach arm of NKU’s College of Informatics and draws upon student and faculty expertise from business informatics, computer science and communication areas as well.
