Interdisciplinary Women’s Council (IWC)

The Northeastern University Interdisciplinary Women’s Council, or the IWC for short, is the first body on the Northeastern campus that aims to bring together women and women’s organizations on campus to facilitate the communication and promotion of women’s leadership initiatives and events on campus. Unlike other organizations with similar values, the IWC will work absent of a disciplinary bias. The council, at its core, is a means for individuals and clubs on campus to be exposed to the resources, the knowledge, the events, and the practices that have helped propel some of the campus’s largest women’s organizations to the success we see from them today. Too often, the biggest barrier to female empowerment is the lack of communication between women and this council wants to change that. We believe that every organization on campus that has shown their commitment to gender equality should have the ability to know how to succeed as a club at Northeastern and the best way to do that is to learn from clubs who have already done it. The council will also be the primary body from which the university hosts campus-wide, interdisciplinary women’s events such as this year’s International Women’s Day Celebration.E-mail: [email protected]: @neuiwc

Northeastern’s Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)

Northeastern's AWM chapter hopes to foster a communal environment within the math department that empowers women and other underrepresented gender identities in STEM to conduct research, experience co-op, study abroad, and more. The core of our work involves the development of events and workshops that aim to support chapter members in fulfilling their academic and professional goals.

The END Initiative

The END Initiative is a group of Northeastern University students on a mission to see the END of Neglected Diseases. We raise funds, advocate for change, and bring awareness to our local community in an effort to bring about the eradication of these neglected diseases. We support Deworm the World, a global health organization that provides effective help for global communities and funds initiatives to bring lasting change to these communities.

Marine Biology Club

The Marine Biology Club strives to foster and engage students with interests in marine biology, environmental science, ecology, evolution, and behavior by providing educational, recreational, and professional opportunities in correlation with the Marine Science Center.

COS Student Diversity Advisory Council

COSSDAC aims to provide support for underrepresented students in the sciences. It helps members academically, professionally, and provides postgraduate resources and a sense of community. They bring the resources that exist directly to members, such as mentorship programs and inviting different offices to meetings to speak about opportunities and resources. COSSDAC believes in giving back to the community by having science enrichment programs to get high school students into science and learn about the disparities that exist in our communities.
