New to the IU School of Education? Make new friends and get involved through an undergraduate student organization!
Through our student groups, you’ll build connections while learning more about the field of education. These groups are also a great way to expand your professional network and find out about job, fellowship and internship opportunities.
- Balfour Us - This group brings together hyperraced and historically underserved populations on IU Bloomington’s campus, into a safe and comfortable place where students can be supported in their academic, personal, and professional development.
- Books & Beyond - Books & Beyond is a student-led project with two main aims: to provide high-quality reading material for school children in Rwanda, a country that is experiencing a “book famine,” and to foster critical thinking skills as students author, illustrate, publish, and market an annual cross-cultural anthology of children’s stories.
- Community of Diverse Educators - CODE seeks to discuss, challenge, and dismantle issues and barriers that hyperraced and traditionally underrepresented communities face in the field of education through empowerment and advocacy. In addition to serving the School of Education community, CODE will work with the local communities to support education.
- Dean’s Advisory Council - Represent your fellow undergraduate students as a member of the Dean’s Advisory Council. Council members work directly with the Office of Teacher Education to help shape policies and procedures at the School of Education. In addition, the Dean’s Advisory Council takes part in special projects and activities, hosts outreach programs, brings speakers to campus, and publishes a newsletter. All undergraduate students are eligible to join.
- Education Policy Student Association - Be part of a cross-campus conversation on topics related to education policy. The Education Policy Student Association sponsors speakers and provides opportunities for you to participate in panel discussions. We sponsor an ongoing film series featuring documentaries on topics related to education policy. We also provide career development resources, including internship, fellowship and job opportunities.
- Indiana Student Education Association - The Indiana Student Education Association is a student group affiliated with the National Education Association, the largest professional employee organization in the United States. As a dues-paying member, you’ll have access to professional publications, workshops, conferences, and training with local, state, and national educators. You’ll also enjoy discounts on NEA dues and liability coverage once you become a practicing teacher.
- Kappa Delta Pi - Kappa Delta Pi is the International Honor Society in Education. Students may be invited to join the organization based upon their involvement within the School of Education and maintaining a grade point average of 3.5 or above. Kappa Delta Pi holds many service projects within the School of Education and the community, such as the Scholastic Book Fair, Literacy Alive and raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake. If you would like to receive more information about Kappa Delta Pi, please email the group.
