The goal of the Academic Relations Committee (ARC) is to create a shared vision for building the ISACA Student Group on campus and introduce students to the local professional association. The Academic Relations Committee is responsible for acting as a liaison to local colleges and universities and/or the university's academic advocate. It creates relationships with university and college students.

The members of ARC have the opportunity to share their expertise with students and also can provide assistance to advocates at identified local colleges and universities to review curriculums to help ensure that the most current trends and topics in audit and technology are addressed within these curriculums - based on the experience and observations of ISACA professionals. Please contact the Academic Relations Committee Chair for more information.

The ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter is dedicated to furthering the profession by cultivating strong relationships with the local academic community.
