New Interdisciplinary College Established at Vanderbilt University: The College of Connected Computing.

Vanderbilt University is establishing a new college focused on computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), data science, and related fields. This new college, called the College of Connected Computing, aims to collaborate with all of Vanderbilt’s schools and colleges to advance breakthrough discoveries and enhance computing education through a “computing for all” approach.

The interdisciplinary college will be overseen by a new dean who will report to Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Dr. C. Cybele Raver and School of Engineering Dean Dr. Krishnendu “Krish” Roy. The search for a dean is set to begin in late August.

Dr. Raver highlighted how the new college will allow Vanderbilt to expand on its existing programs and provide students with exceptional educational opportunities. She noted that the growing global interest in AI aligns well with Vanderbilt’s expertise in the field.

Chancellor Dr. Daniel Diermeier emphasized the importance of advanced computing, AI, and data science in shaping society. He believes that for Vanderbilt to continue fulfilling its mission, preparing students for their careers, and advancing research, the university must play a bigger role in studying, understanding, and applying these rapidly evolving disciplines.

Dr. Roy expressed that the establishment of the College of Connected Computing is significant for both the School of Engineering and the entire university as computing is becoming increasingly intertwined with all disciplines
