The committee’s purpose is to engage students at various educational levels, and apprise them of opportunities available in the OEHS industry; provide opportunities for students to learn more about their chosen area of study; and promote interaction between students and professionals in the field of OEHS.
Participation in an AIHA student local section is one of the primary paths to association leadership and is an excellent way for interested students to get active in the association and the industrial hygiene profession. If there is no student local section at your college or university, encourage faculty and students to begin one. Lead the way for a new IH community at your school by accessing the Student Local Section Implementation Kit.
The Student Local Sections Council's purpose is to develop and enhance student local sections by fostering the development of leadership skills within the students and strengthening the connection of student local sections to AIHA.
