Student organizations

Participation in student organizations is a great way to develop or strengthen your skills in collaboration, communication, and leadership and to apply what you learn in the classroom in real world situations. Active involvement in organization activities also provides you with opportunities to network and engage in professional development, social, and other programs with your classmates, alumni, and established health professionals.

To get more information on starting or reestablishing a student organization or to learn about resources for recognized student organizations, including how to apply for funding, please visit the WSU Dean of Students Office website.
