GIEP 2016: League of Friends of the Blind

Tuesday, 09/06/2016

Eighteen graduate students from the University of Michigan traveled to Cape Town, South Africa in May 2016 to spend two months working with four local non-profit organizations on their information challenges.

The information systems team worked on an integrated information management system and associated processes to streamline the management of mission critical information using the group’s current IT and infrastructure capabilities. They also incorporated and integrated adaptive technologies for the use of LOFOB’s visually impaired staff.
