Student Constructors is an umbrella organization housing the officially chartered student chapters of:
The AGC and ABC are construction industry associations that represent general and specialty contractors, vendors, and suppliers. They represent every aspect of the construction industry, including: commercial, industrial, civil, public and private, large and small construction firms. These two organizations represent over 100,000 construction firms nationwide. Services these organizations provide to their members are plan rooms, lobbying in relation to contractor sensitive legislation, communication on construction issues, education, publications, and insurances.
Support from the national and state branches of these associations has been invaluable to Construction Engineering Technology at USM. The AIC is a construction professional association. The individual is a member of this organization as opposed to company membership for the AGC and ABC. The AIC, in the future, will test and register construction professionals the same way engineering professional associations do at present. The AIC publishes a journal and promotes research and development in the construction industry. Student Constructors is a very active student organization. Some of the activities this group participated in the past were:
We are also proud to say that one of our former members and former President Garrett Wright, is a recipient of the Pearson Prize for Higher Education, a national honor in recognition of his leadership in community service.
