Members of the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) have come together to create a generation of public interest technologists while building the field of public interest technology.
Every year, promising students graduate from programs offered at PIT-UN member colleges and universities. These programs help graduates apply their skills in public service and technology for individual rights, justice, and other critical societal issues.
