Meet the Dean

Laverne McQuiller

We have learned through long experience that the world’s problems cannot not be solved by technology alone; rather, we will solve them by thinking critically about the social, ethical, legal, environmental, political and economic aspects of these problems, and through understanding how to create and use technology to bring out the best in humanity.
