The Center for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (CHASS), a joint effort of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and NCSA, will foster innovation by engaging humanists, artists, and social scientists in sustained collaboration with their colleagues in computer science, engineering, and high-performance computing and communications in order to develop tools to accelerate research and education.

“Bringing together the experience of humanists and the expertise of information technology specialists will immeasurably benefit all participants,” said NCSA Director Thom Dunning. “It’s vital that those in the arts, humanities, and social science be able to tap the benefits of technology, and they also have much to contribute to the development, deployment, and understanding of information technology.”

CHASS is led by Vernon Burton, a University Distinguished Teacher/Scholar, professor of history and sociology, and the leader of NCSA’s Humanities and Social Science Division.
