Mission Statement

The Center for Information Technology Policy, based at Sherrerd Hall, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, interdisciplinary hub where researchers study the impact of digital technologies on society for the good of society. Our work draws from expertise across the Princeton University campus; our community includes academics and researchers from the fields of computer science, economics, politics, engineering and sociology.

Every year, fellows from academia and industry visit Sherrerd Hall to collaborate on digital technology research. The Center also hosts public events, including conferences, lectures, lunch seminars, and briefings in Washington, D.C.

CITP’s programming includes a Technology and Society undergraduate certificate, a Tech Policy Clinic, a Public Interest Technology Summer Fellowship, and an Emerging Scholars in Technology program.

CITP is an initiative of Princeton University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) and the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA)
