General Club Information:

What we can do for you
For Students: If you are interested in technology and management, want an opportunity to connect with employers and learn new technical skills, and want to gain leadership experience while working in small groups for resume development, we are the club for you!

We generally provide an overarching project each year that you can be involved with. Additionally, we provide committee work on various smaller projects so members have more opportunities to gain experience and/or new technical skills.

For Employers: We provide you with a venue to disseminate your career and employment opportunities during our meetings and/or via our listserv.

Member requirements
Currently the KSU MIS Club does not require a membership fee from those who attend our meetings. However, in return for this, we ask that if you come to our meetings and that you are ready to listen, learn, and ask questions. Typically the students who attend our meetings are MIS and CIS majors, but it is not a requirement to be declared as one of these two majors. If you are passionate about technology, or want to learn more about technology, then you are a perfect member for our club.

Scholarships
In addition to providing you opportunities to gain new experiences, at the conclusion of each spring semester, we give you a chance to express your experiences with the KSU MIS Club to win financial awards. These winning scholarship applications are announced each year during the May meeting on the basis of scholastic achievement, club involvement and project activities.

Interested members should e-mail their completed application to Dr. Chilton (mchilton@ksu.edu). Deadline for the Spring 2014 scholarship and application will be posted in the spring.
