Student Leaders

The IU2U program is scheduled to resume virtually during Summer 2022. If in-person workshops become a possibilty, then student leaders will have the option to join the travel team. Otherwise, student leaders who lead virtual workshops will be given priority to travel with the program once in-person workshops resume.  


Complete the IU2U Student Leader Application no later than October 31st. Be prepared to discuss the following in your application: 

  • How participating in the program fits within your personal and professional goals
  • Your strengths and weaknesses and how the program would benefit from your participation while also helping you grow
  • Challenges you faced as a first-year student and advice you would give to new students and their parents 

Interviews will take place in early November with decions finalized by November 15th. Students selected for the program will be required to take a 1-credit course during the second eight-weeks of the Spring 2022 semester. The class meets on Wednesdays from 4:55-6:25pm and students should reserve this time when planning their spring schedule.

IU2U gave me a better sense of self. It showed me that I am interested in working with international populations. I met people that I would have never met otherwise and I am grateful to call them all my friends to this day.
