Highlighted Clubs

The Office of Graduate Studies would like to highlight the new ACM SIGCHI student chapter at RIT.  If you have a club you would like to see highlighted on our website please contact Rauncie Ryan.

Brian Coleman shared the following about this great new club opportunity:

In undergrad, I was involved in a host of committees and organizations at University of Pittsburgh. I found those experiences to be highly rewarding personally, and beneficial for leadership experience. I made lifelong friends along the way too. Since, I'm new to Rochester Institute of Technology, I wanted to find people who shared my passion and interests in Human-Computer Interaction. It is a growing field. Providing a club that meets the social needs of students, but also informs the campus about opportunities within the field is very appealing to me. Human-Computer Interaction is a program that integrates elements of psychological sciences, art/design, and computer science into one area. Anyone can participate and be a practitioner of this field. As a practitioner, you attempt to create satisfying aesthetic and technological experiences for users.  Apple is a corporate leader in this area, and competitors of Apple are looking to mimic their products success.

ACM SIGCHI Student Chapter at RIT has the following benefits:

  • As a student organization, we can participate in the ACM Distinguished Speakers Program, where guests may be invited to speak at RIT. This is a great way to involve other students from the area and professionals--a networking opportunity with professionals in the field.
  • Scholarship Competitions available for ACM student members
  • A leadership building activity
  • Social Engagement with your fellow students; this helps with long-term academic goals, as students who've worked ahead of you can provide insight or guidance and tips you need to know to thrive academically.

I hope to see continued interest and growth in this area, and invite all students on campus to participate!
