The James H. and Mary B. Quello Center is focused on research that stimulates and informs public debate on media, communication and information policy. Our research often challenges assumptions about the role of technology, policy and regulation for citizens, communities, and society in pursuit of optimizing the full benefits of advanced communications in the digital age.

Quello Center researchers collaborate across Michigan State University, with other centers of excellence, and with stakeholders to advance the political, social and economic potential of the Internet and related technologies and services. Current research addresses next-generation networks (5G, Internet of Things), network neutrality, digital inclusion, the opportunities of next-generation media, and data ethics.
