IT Academy - Fusion 2015 Donation

In lieu of advisory board, speaker, attendee and sponsor honorariums, WTN Media will be making a generous charitable donation in the name of Fusion 2015. This donation will help students of color, and from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as displaced workers in search of IT careers.  Resources are now available to help organizations around the state to start programs modeled after the successful IT Academy at UW-Madison.  From our board and personal discussion, these programs are lacking in Milwaukee, the Fox River Valley and state-wide.

Sponsored by the UW-Madison Division of Information Technology (DoIT), ITA is an innovative, 4-year pre-college technology access and training program for talented students of color and economically disadvantaged students attending Madison Public Schools. Our mission is to prepare students for technical, academic, and personal excellence in today’s Information Age.

Each year, ITA competitively recruits 30 students in their final semester of 8th grade to participate in the program. Selected students receive four years of intensive training in preparation for high tech, IT related careers; in addition to intensive academic support in preparation for competitive University admissions and study. The Academy’s dual focus on academic excellence and technological literacy prepares promising students for learning and leadership in the 21st century digital age, and continues the University of Wisconsin’s long tradition of excellence and service.
