STEM Student Organizations

The STEM community has a variety of student professional organizations that allow you to grow and foster your learning in an environment with those who share the same interests. By coming together with students and faculty members outside of the classroom setting, you will be able to experience even more within your academic discipline.

Student professional organizations provide opportunities for you to meet experienced professionals, collaborate with students at other universities, or form relationships with colleagues outside the classroom. They provide social, academic, entrepreneurial, and professional networking opportunities.

Opportunities for student participation in clubs and organizations on campus are limitless. Current campus organizations include a broad variety of national, regional and local organizations, associations and institutions.

Below is a list of our current STEM Student Organizations. To learn more, please log in to the Student Organization Directory to find contact information and indicate your interest in joining the group.
