IU Corps Student Board

IU Corps Student Board

Be a voice that's heard.

The  IU Corps Student Board is an opportunity for students with diverse perspectives and academic experiences to come together and foster a healthy and robust culture of service at Indiana University Bloomington.

Each semester, the board will identify opportunities to strengthen this culture of service, conduct research, and put their findings and ideas into action. To be a part of the IU Corps Student Board is to help break down barriers and create an inclusive environment that enables every IU student to serve, grow, and thrive through service and volunteering.

As a member of the board, you have the opportunity to: 

  • Ideate and recommend strategies to increase student engagement in meaningful service experiences
  • Identify barriers that prevent or hinder students' ability to participate in service
  • Evaluate student engagement proposals, ideas, and goals for future IU Corps initiatives
  • Communicate the importance of service and service opportunities available as an ambassador for IU Corps
  • Leverage the resources of IU Corps and its network to implement strategic council goals
  • Represent your peers' needs, issues, expectations, and hopes at meetings 

Members of the IU Corps Student Board discuss and advise how IU Corps can effectively communicate its resources and services with students, and conversely, how students can most effectively communicate their ideas, needs, and concerns to the office.

If you know of anyone with a project or opportunity that you think the IUCSB may be able to help with, please email coknapp@iu.edu

IU Corps Mission

To help IU Bloomington students become engaged, productive, and responsible members of society.

What is expected of members?

Your role as a member of the IU Corps Student Board will be to offer insights to best support students’ service experience while at IU. Board members provide an informed student perspective on the current service climate. Throughout the semester, board meetings will include brainstorming, researching, deliberating, and working together as a team to implement the ideas and goals of the council. 

Members are asked to attend and prioritize each mandatory bi-monthly meeting, contribute their ideas and opinions, and respectfully consider other ideas brought to the board. Members of the board are expected to serve an entire school year and appointments will start at the beginning of the fall semester and end at the conclusion of the spring term.

Members of the board are expected to dedicate 8-10 hours a month to the IU Corps Student Board including bi-monthly board meetings, subcommittee meetings, and events.
