Since 1993, approximately 32 ASEE Student Chapters have been created across the U.S, but only 16 of those Chapters are currently active. From limited information, it seems even fewer active Chapters are making a significant contribution to the student population at their respective schools. This study determined the level of Chapter-organized programming and member involvement via a voluntary web survey given specifically to all ASEE Student Chapters and the more general national student member and recent graduate population. The resulting data was aggregated and analyzed to identify common characteristics among Student Chapter offerings. This paper organized the data into common themes of programming that include teaching assistant training, faculty job preparation, and sharing engineering education research. The paper discusses Student Chapter offerings and proposes ideas for future programming and longevity of ASEE Student Chapters.
