“Education is a fundamental part of SMPTE’s mission,” said Pat Griffis, SMPTE education vice president. “We are pleased to have so many students looking to expand their academic education by joining SMPTE and taking advantage of practical, standards-oriented training and networking opportunities that can help them advance their future careers.”

A variety of initiatives aimed at students and recent graduates have helped student membership climb to nearly 15 percent and the number of SMPTE Student Chapters to increase to nearly 25. The SMPTE Student Membership Challenge fund, founded and funded by William C. Miller, SMPTE membership vice president, along with a growing number of his SMPTE colleagues, pays for the first year of membership for new Student Members. SMPTE also supports Student Chapters at colleges, universities, and institutions where courses are offered in technical areas of film, video, and television. Student Chapters give students the opportunity to meet industry leaders and professionals, and to interact outside of the classroom with other students and faculty who have an interest in the motion-imaging industry.
