CommuniTech is a student organization at the University of Pennsylvania that aims to assist communities in need by teaching technology skills to the residents and supplying them with computers.
CommuniTech is a unique community service initiative at the University of Pennsylvania. It is a non-profit student organization that seeks to bridge the digital divide both locally and globally. CommuniTech is one of the most active student-driven community outreach groups at Penn; together, the board and members energetically and intelligently tackle the challenges of bridging the digital divide one project and one person at a time.
As society becomes increasingly integrated with technological breakthroughs, there is danger that underprivileged individuals will be left behind and, as a result, will be further disadvantaged in their pursuit for equality. Within universities, there is a wealth of technical talent. Given this pool of expertise, we believe that students can play a pivotal role in helping society benefit from technology and ensure that nobody gets left out of modern innovation.
We also stress green computing, as we aim to reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product's lifetime, and promote the recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste.
The CommuniTech student leaders believe in measurable and tangible performance. We strive to improve our operations, grow our membership base, and ensure the sustainability of our work.
