The School of Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) drives change in the Milwaukee community through partnerships with local nonprofit organizations. The Nonprof-IT program provides IT solutions like a new website, social media campaign and strategy, and tech assessments at no cost, saving participating nonprofits thousands of dollars.  In return, UWM students gain real world experience working on project teams  providing technology solutions, and receive credits toward graduation while developing a passion for service and the employability skills needed to succeed in the workforce upon graduation.
