Human-centered computing has a long history at CU Boulder, beginning with professors like Peter Polson, Tom Landauer, Gerhard Fischer, Clayton Lewis, Skip Ellis and Walter Kintsch. Today’s faculty and students continue this legacy, and can be found in academic homes across the university. Four of CU’s faculty have been elected to the CHI Academy, including one SIGCHI Lifetime Achievement Award, and two have received the ACM CHI Social Impact Award.

We conduct research in social computing, health informatics, human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported cooperative learning, graphical programming, broadening CS participation, computer animation, game programming, crisis informatics and many other topics.
