School of Information grads trek to Haiti


School of Information (SI) graduate students—including Sara Naab, above—set out June 7 for Miami in an old school bus, which then traveled by freighter to Haiti. The students are researching the role that information and community technologies can play in the Haitian economy. They took 6,000 books, 3,200 pounds of pinto beans, 92 computers and other items. Other students include Sadanori Horiguchi, Junko Sagawa, Elizabeth Keith, Ben Robinson and Sharon Smith of SI and Luis Castro of the Business School. Another seven SI students in Ann Arbor are assisting with distance-learning technologies: Henry Chou, Caroline Crouse, Erin Doumboulaki, Rachel Hu, Cory Knobel, Jim Ungar and Sara Ulius. They also have received faculty support of their efforts. (Photo courtesy School of Information)
