ALA Student Chapters

The first ALA Student Chapter was created in 1980 at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. The most recent ALA Student Chapters were created in 2017. Now numbering over 60 (see ALA Student Chapters Directory), Student Chapters have their own character and purpose. ALA Student Chapters enhance students’ ALA membership by providing leadership and programming opportunities on the campuses.
