Nonprof-IT provides students the opportunity to work with a team of peers on a technology project for a local nonprofit. Nonprof-IT is open to freshman through seniors of any major at UWM. Credit is taken through the School of Information Studies INFOST 408 course (3 credits). INFOST 408 is cross-listed with other majors like DAC, JAMS, and DVC for other majors internship credit. Teams consist of 4-5 students each. Projects run each fall and spring semester.
This is a one of a kind opportunity to gain real-world experience, earn course credit, and work/network with mentors from the Milwaukee business community.
