AITP Student Chapter Receives Outstanding Recognition
The JMU Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) Student Chapter was recently recognized as “The Outstanding Student Chapter of the Year” at the National Collegiate Conference in St. Louis, Mo. This award is given each year to the student chapter that excels the most in the areas of leadership, education, membership, public relations, and participation.
AITP Co-Advisor Dr. Susan Kruck was recognized as the “AITP Student Chapter Faculty Advisor of the Year.”
According to Co-Advisor Dr. Tom Dillon, “Our AITP success the last four years would not have happened if not for the dedication of our supportive faculty. Co-Advisors Laura Atkins and Jim Jewett share their time and energy regularly with the AITP Student Chapter members. Those who volunteer their talents as event competition coaches and provide encouragement are also a supportive key to our success.”
According to Dr. Dillon, “the AITP Student Chapter successes are an accomplishment of our team, students and faculty, working together.”
“Recognition as the Outstanding AITP Student Chapter is well deserved and can be attributed to consistent faculty leadership from the AITP Chapter Advisors, comprehensive faculty engagement, superb student leadership, support and engagement from CIS & BSAN industry partners, and more than anything else, teamwork,” says Dr. Rick Mathieu, Interim Associate Dean in the COB.
Congratulations to the AITP on this outstanding achievement.
