AIGA encourages the formation of student groups at colleges and universities as a way of encouraging students to take the first step in demonstrating a commitment to their professional interest and assisting them in understanding the profession.
The goal of the student groups is to get the student involved in the local design community, create a community of their own and help them build leadership skills that will be valuable as they move into the professional world. This activity provides an opportunity for training and often leads to future chapter officer roles. AIGA Arizona has three student chapters around the state where college students can get involved and experience board-level activity before they graduate.
AIGA Poly is the student group at Arizona State University’s Polytechnic campus. They are all-inclusive for all design students, for fun and for the future. They abide by rules governed by Arizona State University Student Organizations Requirements, AIGA National Code of Conduct, AIGA Ethics and Social Responsibility, and AIGA Standards of Professional Practice.
