Supply Chain Student Club

The Supply Chain Management Club aims to provide members with a real-world perspective on industry operations and strategies.  The club facilitates the CSCA and Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification exams, hosts industry speakers, and tours companies that excel in the supply chain industry. This spring, the club has had the pleasure of hearing a variety of professional speakers from Arrow Electronics, Ajilon, Target, Wolf Robotics, and Dennis Cole's career advising. This semester 13 students have become Certified Supply Chain Analysts, and several earned their Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification on Saturday, April 8. We have had the pleasure of bringing large groups of students to tour the Woodward Manufacturing Plant in Fort Collins and the Walmart Distribution Center in Loveland, Colorado.

The club has more exciting events on the horizon with Otter Products, Wolf Robotics and Horse & Dragon Brewery in the coming weeks. The club is looking forward to building more relationships with local companies, continuing to provide more events, and connecting more students with employment opportunities. Please email the club President, Hannah Walcher, or the faculty advisor, Paul Vanderspek, if you are interested in participating in any events, hosting tours, or have questions.
