Get Involved!

We are looking for 8-10 graduate and undergraduate students who represent the widest possible diversity of academic programs, campus affiliations and identity groups who are eager to contribute feedback, ideas and support to the improvement of the student technology experience on campus.

Previous coursework and/or experience related to technology is not a requirement - just an interest in shaping the student IT landscape.
