The Center for Applied Informatics, part of the NKU College of Informatics at Northern Kentucky University is a prototypical institution, showing how academic and business organizations can work together for regional good. The center directly enhances student success and the mission of informatics through community engagement and managed co-ops.

The NKU Chase Law + Informatics Institute provides critical interdisciplinary research regarding law, regulation and industry practice as it is applied across complex information systems, emerging technology and all areas of law. While not limited to any particular legal field, the institute emphasizes intellectual property law, privacy, business and securities law, international law, and evidentiary rules because the creation, acquisition, aggregation, security, manipulation, and exploitation of data have extensive legal and societal consequences in these fields.
