Changes in informatics program strain UB relationships
Business First of Buffalo has a report on The UB School of Informatics. The School of Informatics was originally conceived as a place to bring together four departments, including the departments of computer science and engineering, media study and communication and the school of information and library studies. Computer science and engineering and media study never joined the school, however. Tripathi contends the dissolution of the school aligns with the principles of the UB 2020 planning process, which calls for providing the best academic support for students and making changes that would allow programs to flourish.
