About Us

The McGannon Center is dedicated to furthering understanding of the ethical and social justice dimensions of media and communication technologies, particularly how such technologies affect the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within society.

We are committed to diverse participation and representing an array of perspectives throughout our activities.
