GET INVOLVED

Clubs & Groups

Where to start? There are so many ways to be involved at Innis: pick a club, group, or organization that speaks to your interests and/or goals — from governance to leadership to wellness.

While they’re all different in the areas they cover, they’re also identical in one important way: all offer a built-in community, a sense of belonging, and the perfect way to build friendships.

What are you interested in?

University is much more than academics; getting involved in campus life will benefit you both personally and in your future life and career. Join the club — there’s one (or two or three) waiting for you!
