Technology and social responsibility are merging at Quinnipiac University, where a new initiative is encouraging students to contribute to the greater good. The Department of Computer Information Systems (CIS) in Quinnipiac’s School of Business has adopted the Information Technology for Good (IT4G) initiative, a growing movement that emphasizes applying information technology to aid social causes. “This is an emerging value system,” said Bruce Saulnier, professor and chair of computer information systems. “We would like all faculty and students to consider the power they have to make changes in the lives of people struggling to help themselves.”
