School of Public Policy and Computational Sciences Created

George Mason has established a School of Public Policy and a School of Computational Sciences. The School of Public Policy was initiated as part of an effort to expand the scope, quality, and visibility of George Mason's programs in public policy. The new school will be the primary public policy academic unit of the university, focusing on the study of national governance, regional development, international commerce, science and technology, and culture and values.

The School of Computational Sciences is a merger of the university's Institute for Computational Sciences and Informatics and the Institute for Biosciences, Bioinformatics, and Biotechnology. The new school incorporates interdisciplinary doctoral, master's, and certificate programs that emphasize the role of computation in performing modern scientific research. While other academic and research units at the university focus on developing information technologies, the School of Computational Sciences emphasizes the application of those technologies to problems in the biological, physical, mathematical, and data sciences.
