NYU Alliance for Public Interest Technology

As the global center for research and thought leadership on the responsible and ethical creation, use and governance of technology in society, we leverage our multidisciplinary faculty, research, resources, and professional and community networks to collaborate with, and engage the university community, public institutions, public interest organizations, and community based organizations, to significantly impact the world’s current and future technology landscape.

About Us

The NYU Alliance for Public Interest Technology (NYU Alliance) is a dynamic and multidisciplinary group of NYU faculty, administrators and staff who are experts in the responsible and ethical creation, use and governance of technology in society. The Alliance is sponsored by NYU’s Center for Faculty Advancement (CFA), whose mission is to facilitate faculty research, teaching and ability to make a significant and lasting impact in the communities across the globe with whom we work.

As an institution committed to understanding and developing the field of Public Interest Technology (PIT), the Alliance supports PIT students and graduates, supports new interdisciplinary PIT research, develops pipelines for diverse students doing PIT work, and recognizes faculty for PIT work. The Alliance works with public and private institutions and with other colleges and universities to understand and expand collaborative networks to further the development of technology that serves the public interest.
