Computational Media

The Computational Media Department (CM) engages in boundary-pushing research and education that integrates technical, interpretive, and design work to create human-centered media that address complex problems for societal impact.

These are the core values we hold, which form the foundation on which we perform work and conduct ourselves as scholars, researchers, and members of communities:

  • Impactful: We create media, experiences and ways of understanding that have an impact in the world we live in.
  • Socially responsible: We actively perform research and education that benefit society at large and advance social goals.
  • Open: We embrace diverse ideas, disciplines, approaches, concepts, and methods in our work and community.
  • Boundary-pushing: We are forward facing while being reflective of the past. 
  • Collegial: We engage in partnership across our communities in a respectful manner.
  • Address “messy” problems: We are unafraid of handling real-world problems that are naturally messy.
