Welcome to the University of West Florida's Student Chapter of Association for Information Systems homepage.
UWF's AIS chapter was created to build a lasting connection between Management Information System students and business professionals. In earlier UWF years, ACM (The Association for Computing and Machinery) was the founding organization for the MIS degree field. In the Spring of 2010, UWF students voted that the ACM organization should be converted to the newer AIS (The Association for Information Systems) organization. Primary reasons for this transformation include the one-time opportunity of being a charter AIS chapter, the organization's more in-line focus towards MIS students, and the numerous advances in technology and changes in business attitudes at UWF and the global community. Currently, the local UWF AIS chapter boasts numerous achievements and other recognition. UWF was one of the founding fathers top 50 charters for the global student organization.
Your local AIS chapter is one of the few that is backed by an educational institution that is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Most importantly, its local community is formed from leading and world recognized UWF alumni. UWF's local Association for Information Systems chapter welcomes all students and professionals to join its community and help build a foundation for future MIS students for years to come!
