The government’s information-related laws, regulations, policies, and programs have a significant effect on how citizens, businesses, and other government agencies use information in many aspects of daily activities.
The Washington Connection
As part of maintaining a world-class faculty and academic programs, the School of Information Studies (iSchool) ensures that its degree offerings include courses that cover federal law and guidance, as well as best practices that cover the civilian, military, and intelligence communities.
Additionally, the school maintains a strong relationship with many federal agencies and programs, collectively refer to as the iSchool’s “Washington Connection.”
The Washington Connection is viewed as a strategically important element of the iSchool’s future plans, which include continuing to educate professionals in all sectors of the federal government, as well as government contractors and consultants around the globe. From military and intelligence agencies to transportation and health and human services, iSchool graduates are excelling in the information-driven world.
