Says the school: “iSchools membership [provides] an opportunity to expand our curriculum with greater emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches, which will help our students better address dynamic and complicated issues around information and technology.”
Also joining the organization is the Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) School of Liberal Arts. Located in Nonthaburi, Thailand, the school is headed by Assistant Professor Vasan Rattanapoka. STOU joins at the Associate level.
