IU Serve IT Nonprofit Clinic
Providing students with unique real-world learning experiences while helping local non-profits. That’s the Serve IT model.
Serve IT exists to serve local non-profit organizations with a wide range of technological services provided by a staff of students, faculty, and employees dedicated to furthering the mission of those organizations.

Tech Trek: Belize
The trip to Belize is an exciting example of how students at IU give help to all who need it. During the first month of summer break students will be taking a trip to Belize and helping with the technology needs of a local high school. Stay tune throughout the summer for updates on this exciting project!
Board game night!
After the Serve IT all team meeting where we had two previous Serve IT members speak to us about how Serve IT has affected their career path, some team members stayed after to participate in board game night to relieve some midterm stress!
Internship Application is now Closed!
The Clinic provides learning opportunities for Indiana University student interns to work in groups helping nonprofit and other public service organizations in the Monroe County area. These interns use technology to provide solutions to real world problems.
This year we had a record number of applicants, which will allow the clinic to expand and help more of the Bloomington community.
Another Website Goes Live!
Creating new websites for non-profits that will improve their organization is an integral part of the Serve IT experience. This week the experience continued with the Spence Pride website going live!
Last semester Logan Doyle and his team worked with Spencer Pride from Spencer, Indiana to help create a completely new redesigned website, which can be seen here. We are happy to announce that the website is currently live and functioning for the organization!
New Live Websites
As of Friday, January 30, 2015, the B’town Jazz and the Buskirk Chumley websites are now live!
Both website projects were developed during the Fall 2014 semester. The B’town Jazz website was redesigned and member-based features were added. The Buskirk Chumley site was upgraded to improve security and design features.

Nine members attended and they played two games. Abbosh said, “It was a fun way to meet and bond with members of Serve IT whom I had never had the chance to talk to before tonight!”
