The Quello Center actively participates in a number of networks and collaborations focused on communication, information and Internet policy and practice. These include collaborations across the College and University as well as national and global collaboration:

College and University

The Center is enhanced by ties with other centers and programs on the MSU campus, including:

The Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR), for which Professor Dutton is an affiliated faculty member, aims to apply research to pressing public policy issues and build problem-solving relationships between the academic and policymaker communities. The Institute promotes and conducts research on issues of public policy; provides survey research services; produces public policy education and training programs; and initiates discussion of society’s most pressing needs among diverse audiences.

Institute for Public Utilities that provides interdisciplinary educational and research activities to inform regulation of public utilities, including the electricity, natural gas, telecommunications, and water industries.

At the Law School, the Center works with faculty of The Intellectual Property, Information & Communications Law Program (IPIC), which focuses on cutting-edge legal issues in this area.
