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
