The purpose of the IGDA Student SIG is to help as many students around the world begin successful careers in the games industry.
The Student SIG manages all IGDA Academic Chapters, which are usually student-run organizations at universities, colleges, and other similar types of educational institutions. Academic chapters focus on cultivating the game development community in their school and local area. The Student SIG then connects each of these chapters with the global IGDA community, while also providing resources, guidance, and networking opportunities.
If you already work in the games industry and would like to help the next generation of game developers, we are always looking for more mentors! Many academic chapters are located in schools that don't formally teach game development, many are in remote or secluded regions, and many have trouble finding resources to learn from in their native languages.
The amount of impact that a mentor can make on a single community can be huge! Help make a difference and apply to be a mentor today by contacting email@example.com
