For more information about any or all of these roles, email sciucomm@indiana.edu. We’d love to hear that you’re interested in contributing, but even if you’re unable to participate this semester, we welcome any comments and questions you have about ScIU.

We know you have something to say, and we’d love to help you share it with the public!
