Who We Are

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

ARCS is powered by a transdisciplinary team of faculty co-investigators and student research leaders who lead each project and collaborate across disciplines. They come from 6 colleges across the CSU Northridge campus, and they bring the diverse perspectives needed to tackle complex problems that IA systems seek to solve for our society. 

As future convergence research leaders, ARCS student Fellows are committed to the ARCS mission, vision, and values; uphold ARCS standards of excellence, ideals and culture; and work collaboratively in an interdisciplinary cohort.
