A New My Pitt and Pitt Mobile Launch This Summer

My Pitt and Pitt Mobile will soon have a modern new look and expanded functionality—including optimization for mobile devices—based on feedback received from the University community last fall. We held 15 student-focused listening sessions, hosted meetings with several University departments, and conducted three online sessions open to regional campuses and the entire University.
