About the School of Computing and Information

As the University of Pittsburgh’s newest school, the School of Computing and Information (SCI) is a growing interdisciplinary community of faculty, staff and students who are accustomed to progressing through change, thinking beyond boundaries, and innovating new approaches to lead our institution and nation to positive change. Since 2017, SCI has hired twenty-five faculty members and we are continuing our growth with multiple openings in the tenure stream this year.

We are fostering an equitable and inclusive community with our scholarship, education, and faculty development initiatives, including: policies to promote a healthy work-life balance; programs to meet the needs of two career couples, and a commitment to recruit, retain, and develop a diverse faculty.

SCI’s interdisciplinary research and education includes computer science, information science, and library and information science with rich connections to partners in health sciences, medicine, engineering, social sciences, humanities, business, and other areas.
