Center for Constructive Communication
Designing tools, methods and systems that connect rather than divide us to create a healthier society.
Creating more trusted, effective paths for communication across divides requires technologists and humanists working together to research, design, build and test new solutions. Organized as two connected sub-groups – a lab to conduct exploratory research and a workshop to build and support advanced prototypes – the Center works with external collaborators to pilot these systems in the field (see below for more detail). Additionally, an important aspect of the new Center is its commitment to reach beyond academia to work closely with experienced, locally based organizations and trusted influencers across the country. These collaborations will be critical for launching pilot programs to evaluate which tools offer the greatest potential to create more trusted communication within our deeply fragmented society.
