  • ITA Madison Students Bring the Fun and Games to Emerson Elementary in Annual Road Show

In alignment with the UW-Madison’s Diversity Framework, Information Technology Academy (ITA) is a pre-college initiative with the goal of increasing enrollment rates of diverse students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

ITA has grown to include three programs, which includes ITA Madison and the two programs that are part of ITA’s Tribal Technology Institute (ITA-TTI) and serve Lac du Flambeau and Oneida.

Through ITA, high school students build knowledge and skills with hands-on training, academic support, mentoring, leadership development, community service and internship opportunities. At the same time, the students’ communities benefit from greater access to technology and from the skills and experience gained by these future leaders.

Be part of the only IT pre-college outreach initiative of its kind and scope in the state of Wisconsin!
