Our project was initiated at Rice University, but we have all long
since left Rice. We now work at Adelphi, Brown, Cal Poly,
Northeastern, Northwestern, Utah and WPI, and often collaborate with
friends at other universities. Over the years the Project has been
partially sponsored by several organizations including:
- the US National Science
- the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) at
the US Department of Education
- the Exxon Foundation
- CORD, partners of the Academy
of Information Technology
We thank these sponsors for their generous support. We also
appreciate the support of our host academic institutions.
