The Institute for Supply Chain Management® (ISM) recently made an additional $1,000 gift to the UW-Superior Foundation for the Transportation & Logistics and Supply Chain Management scholarship, continuing to grow its financial support for students in the program.

The Institute for Supply Management® (ISM) is the first and largest not-for-profit professional supply management organization worldwide. Its mission is to advance the practice of supply management to drive value and competitive advantage, and contribute to a prosperous, sustainable world. Founded in 1915, ISM has over 50,000 members located in 100 countries. The local affiliate in the Twin Ports, ISM Lake Superior, Inc., brings together supply chain professionals for monthly meetings to network and learn more about their field. 

Faculty and students from UWS — the only university in the Twin Ports offering a Supply Chain Management major — serve on the organization’s board. According to Dr. Daniel Rust , Assistant Professor of Transportation & Logistics Management at UW-Superior and ISM-Lake Superior public relations chair, involvement in ISM is especially helpful for people entering the supply chain field because they can learn from others who have been in the industry for many years. 

“Students and new supply chain hires benefit from participating in ISM events as they jump start their careers in this exciting and diverse industry,” he said. “Long-time supply chain professionals also benefit from learning the latest trends and supply chain management strategies.”
