social capital scholars named in ohio

The John Glenn Institute has named David Landsbergen, associate professor of public policy and management, and Angela Stuber, executive director of the Ohio Community Computing Network, its first two John Glenn Social
Capital Scholars.

Social capital includes the networks, community bonds, and trust that a culture develops. The Institute's Social Capital Scholars pursue projects that build social capital directly and produce research illuminating the best mechanisms for creating that capital.
