Association for Information Systems

About Us

Welcome to the AIS Student Chapter Page! We are a student run organization that empowers IS students within the Bryan School. This organization is open to undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students. Our mission is to engage, enrich, and educate our fellow IS peers on the latest information, practices, and mentoring to prepare them for the next steps of our careers.

This organization is part of the Association of Information Systems (www.aisnet.org)

In Spring 2017, we will be hosting elections for Executive Boards so contact us if you are interested or want to learn more about the positions available! Email us if you have any questions.
