Vice President for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity Marilyn Sanders Mobley and Vice President for Information Technology Services and Chief Information Officer Lev Gonick recently presented at the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE).

Their session, titled “Gig. U: The University Community Next Generation Innovation Project and Its Implication for Minority and Low-Income Communities,” was a “special feature” of the conference, held in early June in New York City.

The University Community Next Generation Innovation Project, or Gig. U, is a broad-based group of more than 30 leading research universities, including CWRU, which seeks to accelerate the deployment of ultra high-speed networks to leading U.S. universities and their surrounding communities.
