The purpose of this chapter is that of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc. which was set forth in its charter: principally to advance the arts and sciences of heating, refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation and the allied arts and sciences, for the benefit of the general public. Furthermore this chapter will connect students with industry and professional ASHRAE members as well as encourage interactions between students with the common interest. The chapter’s goals include introducing the student to ASHRAE standards and helping students gain a passion for this industry through socials, design competitions, industry speakers, industry tours, and conference attendance. The mission of ASHRAE is to advance the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration and related human factors to serve the evolving needs of the public and ASHRAE. The vision of ASHRAE is to be the global leader in the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration; be the foremost, authoritative, timely and responsive source of technical and educational information, standards and guidelines; and be the primary provider of opportunity for professional growth, recognizing and adapting to changing demographics, and embracing diversity.
