The Public Interest Technology University Network is a partnership of 21 colleges and universities convened by New America, the Ford Foundation, and the Hewlett Foundation. The network is dedicated to building the nascent field of public interest technology through curriculum development, faculty research opportunities, and experiential learning programs, in order to inspire a new generation of civic-minded technologists and policy leaders.
Sample PIT-UN Undergraduate Programs
Many of the member institutions in the public interest technology university network offer undergraduate degrees in informatics, with an eye toward preparing students for careers designing and managing information technology to serve the public interest. Here, we provide some examples, we will continue to expand this list, in preparation for and based on what we learn at the conference.
