Quinnipiac University Introduces IT 4 Good

Quinnipiac University’s School of Business has launched the Information Technology for Good initiative (IT4G), a program that focuses on how IT can be used for social causes. The program is handled through the school’s Computer Information Systems department, and has been building for some time.

This past semester, students visited a local senior center to help residents learn to use Facebook as a way to keep in contact with friends and family. And members of the faculty will be traveling abroad to learn more about how technology can aid people in developing countries.

“Computer information systems are becoming increasingly global, human-centered and focused on solving problems. IT4G combines all those elements and allows students to work for causes they really care about,” said Bruce Saulnier, professor and chair of the CIS department in a statement.
