• Melanie Hatch (computer science and systems analysis) and Christine Noble (School of Engineering and Applied Science), $9,937 for "SimProject: An Interactive Decision-making Software Tool for Project Management Courses."

The first Fellows in Knowledge Management funds were awarded last spring to the team of Marvin Dainoff, Niles Davis, Leonard Mark, L. James Smart and Robin Thomas (all psychology), $11,800 for "Interactivity in Virtual Environments as a Tool for Displaying Information about Complex Systems."
