Student Organizations

As a future health care professional, being involved in your education is crucial to your success.

Students of the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences have several student organizations available to join and participate in. Becoming involved in the several student organizations offered within SHRS and IUPUI can make a big difference in your education.

  • SHRS Student Council

    The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences Student Council allows students to play an active role in school and profession policy. Members also are active in school and campus events, volunteer throughout the central Indiana community, and are the voice of the school to the IUPUI community.

  • Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA)

    The Student Occupational Therapy Association of Indiana University promotes interest in and further disseminate knowledge of occupational therapy on this campus and in the community among members and non-members. Community engagement is the hallmark of SOTA-IU! Our students provide community service to several organizations on a regular basis including Rock-Steady Boxing, Special Olympics of Central Indiana, and the IU Student Outreach Clinic.

  • Pi Theta Epsilon Occupational Therapy National Honor Society

    Pi Theta Epsilon National Honor Society has almost 100 chapters throughout the country. Indiana University's chapter was the sixth chapter established in the country in 1969 under the direction of Dr. Carol Nathan. This honor society recognizes the top 35 percent of students in the class. The mission of the chapter and society is to promote research and scholarship in the field of occupational therapy. IU's occupational therapy program is the only OT program in the state to have such a chapter.


    The Physician Assistant Student Society-Indiana University (PASS-IU) advocates the physician assistant profession on campus and in the Indianapolis community. Leadership and philanthropy are the cornerstones of PASS-IU. Students are involved in numerous community service activites with organizations such as the George and Veronica Phalen Leadership Academy, LaPlaza Food Pantry, and Hoosier Veteran’s Assistance Foundation.

  • Student Physical Therapy Organization (SPTO)

    The SPTO is designed to provide PT students with the leadership skills and love for community engagement that will make them successful physical therapists. The self-governing body is the voice of the DPT students and organizes most of the programs community engagement projects.

  • Go-Baby-Go

    GoBabyGo@IU is a chapter of the GoBabyGo program started by Cole Galloway from the University of Delaware. Our mission is much the same: we seek to provide cost-effective therapeutic assistive devices for children in the community with motor and cognitive developmental delays.
