IT Connects

IT Connects offers a number of programs focusing on everything from mentoring to leadership opportunities to connect IT professionals with others at Penn State. Programs are always looking to add new members, so there are plenty of ways to get involved and learn new skills. All members of the University community can get involved with coaching, mentoring, and professional development programs. In addition to welcoming new program participants, groups are often looking to fill leadership positions on program committees, learn more about the steering committee and how to get involved with IT Connects.
