Hyunjin Seo, Oscar Stauffer Professor and Founding Director of Center for Digital Inclusion at the University of Kansas, is leading a National Science Foundation-funded program offering evidence-based technology education to women who were formerly incarcerated and are now restarting their lives outside the criminal justice system. Through this three-year project, her team is developing curriculum and online modules to broaden technology education to this and other underserved populations who are re-entering the tech workforce and education pipeline. In January 2014, the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication named Dr. Seo an Emerging Scholar in recognition of her research on social media and social change. She holds a Ph.D. in Mass Communications from Syracuse University.
