AGC Student Chapters

Developing Future Leaders

Membership and participation in an AGC student chapter provides young professionals with an opportunity to learn, observe, and develop their skills with current leaders in the industry. AGC student chapters exist at two- and four-year schools offering accredited programs in construction management, construction technology, and construction-related engineering.

AGC Support and Student Networking

The Oregon-Columbia Chapter is proud to support student chapters at two schools in our region, through the efforts of the Workforce and Professional Development Council and the Construction Management Education Committee. Each year our student chapters are encouraged to submit proposals for grant funding to support student chapter activities or technology and equipment upgrades. Students then make formal presentations to the council for review and contractor/student networking. AGC also engages the students at major chapter events and activities that are filled with great networking opportunities.

Industry Support Needed

Students in these programs are eager to learn and better understand their industry. They want to gain relevant experiences and and thrive on developing connections and relationships with future employers. Here are just a few examples of needed industry support activities:

  • networking opportunities between contractors and students
  • guest speakers
  • speaker night events
  • construction site visits
  • interview skills
  • internships
  • summer employment

If you can provide opportunities and support in any of these activities, please contact the faculty advisers.
