Student Chapter of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology Chartered at HPU


High Point University USITT Executive BoardHIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 9, 2012 – The department of theatre at High Point University has charted a student chapter of The United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT), making it the only chapter in North Carolina.

USITT is an organization that connects performing arts design and technology communities to ensure a dialog among practitioners, educators and students. The student chapter of USITT offers the students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of theatre technology, adopt service projects and connect with other student chapters and professionals in the field of theatre design and technology.

Currently, the chapter has nine members, eight of which will travel to the USITT National Conference in Milwaukee in March 2013. Last year, students attended the conference thanks to funding from HPU’s Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Works, where they competed in the Tech Olympics and won individual awards as well as placed fourth overall against 20 teams from across the country.

“As faculty mentor of this chapter, I’m proud of our students who worked diligently to start a chapter on campus,” says Ami Shupe. “Having this chapter benefits the students by providing them with access to an extensive network of professionals in the field of entertainment design and production, as well as the latest technology, educational opportunities, and scholarships.”
