The CROSSROADS OF THE FUTURE

Students in Information Systems are critical to the future of the discipline. The AIS leadership has committed the resources, structure, and support necessary to build this vital component of the association.

Why did you start a student chapter at your school?
“We believe membership in a professional organization is vital to students’ assimilation into the profession. It enhances their career. We are interested in helping student embark on a professional career, as opposed to simply finding a job”. jeffrey.johnson@usu.edu

“Employers today aren’t looking to hire graduates that did the bare minimum to earn their degree.  They want to hire people that are willing to put in the effort to better prepare themselves for the workplace after graduation in the areas that might not be covered explicitly in the curriculum such as leadership and professional network building.  Since many of us are members of AIS, the AIS Student Chapters program was the logical choice to serve as the platform for us to offer these types of development opportunities to our students.”  jlparrish@nova.edu
