What is NEXIS?

NEXIS is a student-run team of undergraduate and graduate students at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies (iSchool). Every year, our members explore emerging technologies through innovative and collaborative research projects to develop real business applications. Throughout this process, these students have the opportunity to grow skills such as project management, research, design thinking and more. We are also an active part of the Syracuse community by hosting and participating in workshops, hackathons, and other events.

Our Mission

“The pursuit of collaborative research in the spirit of student-driven discovery and innovation in the information field”
