Themester Advisory Committee

Themester Advisory Committee Student Representatives

Each year, the College of Arts and Sciences appoints several undergraduate student representatives to the Themester advisory committee.

The Themester advisory committee, made up of College faculty and students, spends the spring semester shaping the subsequent fall semester's Themester program by reviewing programming proposals and selecting events that focus on the theme. The Themester 2023 advisory committee will meet during spring 2023 to discuss plans that will be implemented during fall 2023. The committee meets approximately once a month.

Student committee members provide an important perspective in the creation of the overarching Themester program and help ensure that undergraduate student needs and interests remain central. 

Preference is given to undergraduate students with majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences. The College is particularly interested in students with a strong academic or personal interest in the theme. The fall 2023 theme is an exploration of Indiana University's motto "Lux et Veritas | Light and Truth."


Nominations from faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged. Nominated students will be contacted by the Themester office and asked to provide the materials below. Students do not need to be nominated to apply.
