(Note: This lecture was bumped from its original date to the end of the series and was renumbered in some places.)
This talk outlines the vision and goals of a partnership between the Rokwire group and the Center for Social and Behavioral Science (CSBS). CSBS will collaborate with Rokwire to a) lead and b) support tech-engaged external research proposals by serving as ambassador to over 200 social-behavioral science faculty, as well as connecting researchers to key community partners. Second, CSBS will drive process-centric Rokwire research to make campus smarter, healthier, and more sustainable. Third, the CSBS will help transition Rokwire into a powerful research vehicle for the University of Illinois’ social-behavioral scientists. Fourth, the CSBS will provide Rokwire with SBS-based evaluation and measurement expertise to evaluate and measure key topics for Rokwire, such as attitudes towards technology, student health and wellness, academic success, and life readiness.
