The University of Pennsylvania is committed to the civic mission of higher education, and to the role of technology in the service of the public interest more specifically. We do so across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities through our teaching and courses, our research, and our engagement in the various local, national, and global communities of which we are a part. In the coming year we hope to further this mission through the creation of new PIT-related courses, supporting our newly formed PIT@Penn student club, and exploring possible collaborations with other Pit-UN universities.
