Get Involved

Involvement in student clubs and campus groups opens a new world of learning. Meet new people and develop leadership skills by getting involved on campus.

You'll be having too much fun to notice, but you'll also set yourself up for success. Research suggests that involved students tend to perform better academically and are more likely to graduate than their non-involved classmates.

Science Undergraduate Student Council

The School of Science Undergraduate Student Council (SOSUSC) serves as a conduit between undergraduate students enrolled in the School of Science and the University at large. It is a great way for undergraduate students to get involved and receive funding for their organizations. Our meetings are open to all Science Undergraduate Students.  Fall 2017 meetings will be held on Tuesdays, 6:00 p.m., in the third floor SL/LD lounge.

Funding Requests and Policies

How to request funding

The School of Science Undergraduate Student Council has funds to support science clubs' events. We ask that clubs interested in receiving funding throughout the academic year send a representative to our weekly council meetings. Clubs without regular representation will not receive funding. Please also ensure that your request will support undergraduate science students. We tend to favor requests which will support a large portion if not all undergraduate science students.
To submit a funding request, please visit this link. This online request  will allow you to submit a funding request form online. You can submit your sign-in sheets and itemized receipts to the SOSUSC Treasurer in person or via email at sostres@iupui.edu.
