The University of Chicago is a private research university in Chicago, Illinois. Founded in 1890, its main campus is located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood.
A destination for inquiry, research, and education, the University of Chicago empowers scholars to challenge conventional thinking in nearly every field. The diverse community of creative thinkers celebrates ideas and is celebrated for them—with more than 85 Nobel laureates associated with the University, including eight currently on faculty.
In 2021, The University of Chicago was named one of eight data.org Inclusive Growth and Recovery Challenge awardees. The University of Chicago is piloting a project to study fiber connectivity, broadband throughput, application performance metrics, pricing data, and information about subscriptions/affordability to understand communities in Chicago’s access to affordable, high-speed internet. The project’s goal is to create a complete assessment of a city’s broadband infrastructure that can be used to investigate innovative infrastructure solutions, raise awareness about this critical issue, and empower policymakers, industry leaders, and the public to make better and more informed decisions.
