Description of HUSITA & CUSSN

HUSITA is an international association of information technology (IT) innovators in human services dedicated to promoting the ethical and effective use of IT to better serve humanity.  HUSITA's focus and expertise is situated at the intersection of three core domains: information technology; human services and social development. With an emphasis on human centeredness and social justice, HUSITA strives to promote international knowledge development, dissemination and transfer of technology within human services. It achieves this through multidisciplinary leadership in international conferences, publications, collaboration and consultation directed particularly at IT applications and innovations that promote social betterment.

HUSITA replaces the Computer Use in Social Services Network (CUSSN).  CUSSN was  an informal association of professionals interested in exchanging information and experiences on using computers in the human services. It began in 1981 with a newsletter that was published until 1992.  In 1992, the CUSSN Newsletter was merged with the Journal of Technology in Human Services published by Taylor & Francis and initially edited by Dick Schoech.  For a free sample copy, click on http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wths20/current   HUSITA members receive the online version of the Journal for a reduced fee.  Click here to join HUSITA.
