Association for Computing Machinery
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) brings together computing educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field's challenges. As the world’s largest computing society and the provider of the Turing award, ACM strengthens the profession's collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for life‐long learning, career development, and professional networking.
The ACM Student Chapter provides unique opportunities for networking, mentoring and bonding over common interests. It provides support both within the student community and to local communities outside the institution. ACM at USI invites all computer enthusiasts to come join our chapter. In addition, we love collaborative work and invite all who feel they can contribute (any skill set: art, design, business, management, engineering, science, Math, and others).

Association of Information Technology Professionals
The purpose of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) is to develop a better understanding of information systems, study technical methods and improvements, learn about information technology hardware/software, practice sound data principles of information development and understand the vital role of information in management.
A team of our technology majors traditionally compete at the annual AITP Conference.
Membership is open to all full-time students of any major. Activities include regular meetings, guest speakers, tours of local businesses, informal parties, and special projects.
