Since 2019, the Institute for Digital Humanity – a student-run, bipartisan, digital ethics think-tank located in downtown Minneapolis – has been building new educational and civic coalitions across the digital divide.

In less than 5 years, the IDH has become a recognized thought leader among tech startups, educators, advocacy groups, and governments.

Our approach to digital ethics – with a focus on partnerships with diverse ideologies and on student advocacy – is a key factor in the IDH’s unique successes.

Another important factor in the IDH’s success? It’s student and faculty leadership.


Since launching in January 2019,
