Becoming a member of our SHPE chapter is not very difficult. But in order to understand it easier you must first know that SHPE is a national organization and we are but a small portion of it.

Region 4

SHPE Nationally is divided into seven regions. SHPE @ RIT is currently under region 4. All chapters are connected through this large network but each chapter in the end works independently.

Chapter Involvement

Here at RIT our SHPE chapter offers additional benefits apart from the national benefits. And for this we have chapter dues in order to fund these initiatives for our members. Without these dues you cannot take advantage of these benefits.
