Integrate Humanity & Technology
From health-related inquiry to the social sciences and humanities, CWRU uses technology to deepen and enrich the disciplines, always keeping the human element at the center. Championing excellence in technology to improve humanity is one of CWRU’s strengths and differentiators. Building upon this will allow us to better address social problems and achieve new levels of understanding, but will also raise ethical and philosophical questions about what it means to be human today. CWRU must be at the forefront of examining how technology and people are connecting. We must do so by unleashing our campus’ creativity across all disciplines, while catapulting our research, teaching and learning in the process.
Goal: Define the next level of understanding and knowledge creation at the intersection of humanity and technology.
Pathway Leaders serve two roles: they advise the provost to advance the work of the pathway, and they serve as liaisons to the university community to discuss, gather ideas, and better understand how everyone can engage with the Think Big strategic plan. Pathway Leaders for Pathway 2 are: Mark Griswold, professor of radiology, and Fey Parrill, associate professor in the Department of Cognitive Science.
