In this presentation, I will introduce the concept of the grant information field and discuss how information should become the basic foundation for all the fields in the higher education. The nature and challenges of the grant information field will be discussed first and followed by specific examples. One example is how we at Drexel has integrated computer science, information science, and data science to create an active educational and research domain within the grant information field. The other example is my years of research projects on information visualization which build upon machine learning, knowledge graph, and visual analytical tools and often require collaboration of computer scientists, information scientists, and data scientists. Finally, we will have an open discussion on major challenges that the next generation of computer and information scientists will face.
