Welcome to TIPI
TIPI has been a center at UT for a variety of communications-related research since the 1990s.
What is TIPI?
People associated with TIPI have come from the LBJ School of Public Affairs, the School of Information and the College of Communication and include faculty and students, as well as the broader community of people interested in telecommunications and Internet-related developments. We have worked with international and national agencies and non-profits, as well as private entities, producing both theoretical frameworks as well as grounded, practical research.
As technological innovations and new media create new opportunities for people to interact with one another, to collaborate, to improve how we work together in government, business, in politics, and other spheres of society, the new research can investigate how those innovations affect society at all levels. Our studies range from individuals to institutions to macro-level policies, from entrepreneurship to how children engage digital media, from broadband policies to media literacy to how immigrant communities adopt new technologies.
