Organizations & Services
Kelley students are active in many of the hundreds of student organizations at Indiana University, including a number of business-related organizations that enable students to develop their interests in various fields. The faculty of the Kelley School recognizes that student organizations are a critical component of the Kelley School’s academic environment and educational programs, giving students valuable opportunities beyond the classroom to develop professional maturity and to strengthen leadership skills. In addition, through involvement in these organizations, students can practice Kelley values such as respect, responsibility, and ethical actions and decision-making. The school supports its undergraduate organizations and strongly urges academically successful students to become active members of one or more of the following organizations.
Kelley Student Government (http://kelley.iu.edu/ksg/): The Kelley Student Government (KSG) represents the official voice of the Kelley School of Business undergraduate student body and works together with the faculty and staff of the Kelley School of Business Undergraduate Program to influence curriculum and policy changes, as well as implement various student-led initiatives. The KSG Student Ethics Committee encourages ethics within the Kelley School through programming, education, and policy initiatives. Through the participation of Kelley student organization presidents, KSG serves member organizations by promoting collaboration and information sharing.
Civic Leadership Development (http://kelley.iu.edu/civic/): Founded in 1988, the Civic Leadership Development program (CLD) enhances the Kelley School of Business academic preparation with opportunities for students to increase awareness of local, national, and global social challenges. Under the guidance of a full-time professional staff member, CLD offers several participation venues including strong direct community service, motivational meetings, a lecture series, fundraising, and leadership experience. CLD also offers Alternative Break Program, which selects and prepares students for in-depth service experiences throughout the United States and abroad.
Student Business Ambassadors (http://kelley.iu.edu/ugrad/life/sba.cfm): The Student Business Ambassadors (SBA) help us attract the best and brightest prospective students. Under the guidance of professional staff members, the SBAs present at daily information sessions for prospective students and families, act as hosts to visiting students, represent Kelley at various special events, and assist with new student engagement and recruitment initiatives.
Other Organizations (http://www.kelley.iu.edu/ugrad/life/organizations.cfm): Each year, more than 60 additional organizations of interest to business students register as Kelley Student Organizations.
