Getting involved in a student organization is one of the best ways to bring value to your curriculum vitae.
It can also help you build connections in the field or industry you’re most interested in joining.
In addition to the list of student organizations you can find at the IUPUI Office of Student Involvement, there are several organizations at IUPUI specifically for graduate students. These organizations help to bring a sense of graduate community to the campus. They also provide feedback to administrators about policies and issues affecting you and your colleagues.
