The James and Mary Quello Center (http://quello.msu.edu) conducts high-quality research that will stimulate and inform debate on the societal implications of the Internet and related media, communication and information policy for our digital age. The Center's interdisciplinary research draws from multiple empirical methods and multi-disciplinary theoretical perspectives to challenge taken-for-granted assumptions about policy and practice. The Quello Center is based in the Department of Media and Information at Michigan State University (MSU). It consists of a core set of researchers, complemented by research associates across various MSU colleges. Professor Bill Dutton, founding Director of the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, was appointed as Director of the Quello Center in 2014. Current projects range across local, state, national and global levels, including research on ICT4Detroit, broadband connectivity in Michigan, a study of the actual impact of the FCC's Net Neutrality Ruling, and collaborations with UNESCO and others on global issues of Internet governance, policy and society.
