Inaugural Affiliate Faculty Named for Center for No-Boundaries Thinking

The inaugural affiliate faculty for the Center for No-Boundaries Thinking has been announced by Provost Alan Utter. The center, approved in March by Board of Trustees resolution, is led by Dr. Xiuzhen Huang, professor of computer science. Twenty-three members of A-State's faculty, representing all seven colleges, are members of the inaugural faculty, along with representatives from St. Bernards Medical Center, NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The complete list is available online.

These are exciting times for computer scientists as the discipline is now widely recognized as an essential source of tools and techniques for advancements in nearly all spheres of human endeavor.


Through excellence in research, teaching, and service our dedicated faculty has distinguished itself in the core areas of computer science and in many related multi-disciplinary areas. We continue to stress diversity in our hiring and strongly support the creation of a diverse workforce through our student recruiting and retention programs.
