The Payson Center for International Development was established in 1997 to examine and present the impact of technology, primarily information technology, on societal change and development.

Given the expanding emphasis on the ability to use information, it is vital for both individuals and organizations to understand how the use of technology adds to their quality of life. The Payson Center carries out research, training and service programs in social and economic development. It is dedicated to the use of information and technology assisted methods to improve the process of the transfer of skills, knowledge and competencies, which encourage worldwide participation in an equitable society.

By synthesizing information and constantly generating new approaches and methods, the Payson Center offers innovative solutions to educational and societal problems on a worldwide scale. It is a multi-disciplinary and electronically linked faculty with physical locations in New Orleans, The Washington DC area and Geneva.
