A collegiate STUDENTdirect school chapter is an organized on campus club filled with inspired and motivated students. Being a part of the chapter system you are a part of a multi-national community of students and professionals. The purpose of the STUDENTdirect school chapters is inline with the Foundation's mission statement
"...to improve students educational experience, promote cultural diversity as well as the values necessary of future leaders. To enhance students learning experience beyond the classroom by providing practical experience and to build their resume and portfolio by solving real world problems."
The chapter provides it's members with a chance to have hands on job and leadership experience with a purpose of bridging the gap between a student's school life and their eventual career. The chapters are designed to be a place of networking with like minded students, who are driven to accomplish their goals. Being a part of the STUDENTdirect chapter will also give you the opportunity to meet and network with professionals.
Throughout the semester a school chapter will have various meetings, workshops, and events. Students will have the opportunity to learn and grow as a team. A popular workshop is the "How to land your dream job interview". Members of the chapters also learn how to raise and manage funds. Being a member of a student direct collegiate chapter is a great way to build a stronger resume, give community service, network, learn from those who have been there, and even make a few new friends.
Membership in the STUDENTdirect chapters is like being a member of a company, corporation, or community group. The STUDENTdirect chapters are not structured like most on campus clubs but it is structured like a corporation in order to give members a more real-life hands-on experience. Throughout your tenure as a member of your STUDENTdirect chapter you will no doubt grow in your level of responsibility and leadership.
