The Serve IT Mission

Serve IT students apply technology skills in order to build the capacity of local nonprofits so they may better serve their own missions.

Technology for Social Good

Often, small nonprofits do not have the resources necessary to fulfill their information technology needs. Serve IT is the bridge that connects IU students who have in-demand technology skills with the nonprofits who need them. The Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering emphasizes the idea that we see what tomorrow can be, and we shape it every day. The Serve IT Clinic takes this as far as we can by teaching students to listen to the real needs of clients and community stakeholders and to build the tools they need to move forward and help clients learn to use them.

Student interns receive course credit and are placed on teams and matched with a nonprofit organization. These groups work to create websites, databases, provide graphic design, and computer hardware for organizations. We also send interns to afterschool clubs to teach local kids basic computer science standards through fun activities.
