Our Mission

Promote a community among the Computer Science industry, students, and faculty throughout the state of Utah by hosting free events, workshops, and hackathons.

Founded in 2016 at the University of Utah, HackTheU sought to create Utah’s largest and most inclusive 24-hour higher-education hackathon. Since then, HackTheU has grown from a team of only six to one of over twenty. This surge in popularity has allowed HackTheU to start hosting smaller and more frequent events, such as additional small hackathons, independent workshops, and high school outreach programs.

HackTheU is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and sponsored group under the Associated Students of the University of Utah (ASUU).
