Launched in 2019, the Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN) is a partnership that unites colleges and universities committed to building the field of public interest technology (PIT). Through the development of curricula, research agendas, and experiential learning programs in the PIT space, these institutions aim to develop graduates with skills and knowledge at the intersection of technology and policy. We invite you to check out our Membership Guide to learn more about how the Network is structured, how members work together, and how can anyone engage the Network.
The membership application window is now open and closes on October 31, 2022.
If you are viewing this page outside of that timeframe, please use the button below to indicate your interest in joining PIT-UN, and someone from our office will contact you.
