Connect and Collaborate with the SMLC

As an interdisciplinary initiative, the SMLC invites collaboration across the university and with external clients. More information about working with the Center can be found by clicking on the links to the left.

The SMLC provides unique avenues for student engagement in the form of internships, collaborative research projects, classroom study, and Creative Inquiry.

Internships
Students that intern with the SMLC are fully engaged with the Center. Interns become proficient with Radian6 software and develop highly marketable skills in data collection and analysis. Students that work in the SMLC are also able to participate in a variety of contexts that suit specific interests including but not limited to: news coverage, event planning/management, social media strategy, data analysis, etc. If you are interested in interning with the SMLC, contact Brandon Boatwright.

Research
The SMLC provides faculty, staff, and students ample opportunities to listen, measure, and engage in social media conversations across the Internet. Access to the SMLC for research purposes is readily available. If you are interested in conducting research out of the SMLC, please contact us.

Creative Inquiry
Every semester, at least one Creative Inquiry group is designed to work out of the SMLC. Frequently these CI classes are formed in partnership with external clients to provide real world, tangible experiences to students.

Many faculty members utilize Radian6 and the SMLC in their research. As an interdisciplinary center, the SMLC invites faculty and staff from across campus to learn more about social analytics, and how to integrate data into various research projects and classroom settings.
