I School Professor Hany Farid has been appointed Associate Dean and Head of School for the School of Information.

“When I joined the I School in 2019, I had little doubt of the importance of our collective mission of ‘expanding access to information and to improving its usability, reliability, and credibility while preserving security and privacy.’ Watching over the past 18 months of chaos and turmoil how the internet and technology has been used to fuel divisiveness, lies, and hate, I have become even more convinced of the importance of our mission at the intersection of technology and society.”

Isha Dandavate (MIMS ’14) never thought of herself as particularly technically proficient. Today she’s a senior user experience researcher at Google: “I never considered myself technically savvy.... MIMS made that accessible.”

When the MIMS Alumni Mentorship program launched last winter, Isha signed up to be among the first cohort of mentors. 

The I School now has three Alumni Mentorship Programs: for MIMS, 5th Year MIDS, and traditional MIDS. The program is designed to allow current students a chance to informally connect with alumni who are able to offer academic and career advice.
