Our mission is to provide students with an industry compliant, hands on print and digital production experience.

The RIT TAGA chapter is comprised of students with an interest in learning about and being a part of the graphic arts industry. We are diverse in year level, major and discipline, but are united in our passion for design. Our publication, and our team as a whole, is strengthened by the variety of expertise among our members.

The RIT Student Chapter of TAGA (Technical Association of the Graphic Arts) conceptualizes, designs, and produces an annual print and digital publication containing technical papers written by undergraduate and graduate students. We submit our publications to the Helmut Kipphan Student Publication Competition at the annual TAGA conference.
