Information Systems Research Program

Founded in 1978, the Information Systems Research Program (ISRP) supports the ongoing research of UCLA Anderson's faculty and students and provides close ties to the IS professional community represented by members of the  IS Associates.

The ISRP supports a variety of research activities. It funds ongoing faculty research projects. It provides for research assistantships, supports travel to scholarly conferences, and funds needed research equipment. It also supports doctoral student research and a Visiting Fellows Program. It supports research presentations by visitors, and maintains relationships with business firms that cooperate in and serve as sites for research. Among the IS Associates, a few participate in cooperative research as IS Research Associates.

Prof. Burt Swanson is Director of the ISRP.
