We assume that every major in psychology is a part of the “psychology club”. We have a picnic or party about once a semester. But it’s probably not what you define as a parent “club”. If you are a major you are put into a mailing list and you receive information about this each semester.
Enactus is a TEAM of Anderson University students that supports local communities by demonstrating how business can inspire hope and create opportunity. Our teams implement projects that are intended to improve the company’s overall success. While serving local organizations, students will develop stronger business and leadership skills. Enactus is a way for students to volunteer in the community using business applications. Benefits students can receive by joining are; leadership positions with scholarships, fulfilling a liberal arts credit, the opportunity to travel, interact with Fortune 500 companies at career fairs, and experience will boost a resume.
The eligibility requirement for being in the club is simply having declared Social Work as a major. Freshmen are able to participate if they have declared the major.
Peace and Conflict Transformation
The Peace and Conflict Transformation Program at Anderson University exists to do precisely what the name itself suggests: we desire to see the conflict holding people and entire communities back-transformed into sustainable relationships that produce peace. Where the world sows chaos, we want to be bringers of the cosmos. We acknowledge that this is no easy task, and as such needs to be comprehensive in scope. To that end, we seek to promote peace with God, with Family, with Neighbors, and with the Other. We pursue this mission in two main ways: through the offering of an academic minor in the AU curriculum, and through extracurricular activities that promote advocacy and awareness.

The Engineering Club connects students at Anderson University of different majors, backgrounds, interests, and skill sets. It offers activities such as guest speakers, service projects, field trips, and training opportunities in technical skills. Throughout the year, the Engineering Club members work on events the club participates in such as the Annual Design/Build/Race Boat Challenge, AU Ninja Warrior, the Homecoming Street Fair, board game days, and Pi Day Celebrations.
Women in Science and Engineering
The Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) group participates in outreach events (e.g., “Passport to Hi-Tech” at Conner Prairie), organizes themed chapel series on topics relevant to member interests, and coordinates get-togethers at off-campus locations (e.g., conducting scientific baking experiments at faculty homes).
Pre-Professional Health Society
The Pre-Professional Health Society (PPHS) is a group of students who are interested in attending some form of graduate school to complete the necessary training in their desired field. We meet on a regular basis and invite local health professionals (med, dent, vet, pharm, chiro, etc.) to share their experiences and give insight into their areas of expertise. We also will have social gatherings for fellowship, discussions on scheduling and reviewing for standardized exams. PPHS also participates in various campus events such as homecoming and the afterschool science program with Sigma Zeta.
Sigma Zeta (Upsilon chapter, EZY) is a national undergraduate honor society to encourage scholarship in the natural and computer sciences and mathematics. EZY has existed as a club on campus since 1948. This club allows students from many majors to interact and fellowship in a number of ways. One of our biggest activities is the afterschool science program where we weekly invite local primary school children to campus and have them engage in various STEM activities.
Kappa Mu Epsilon
Kappa Mu Epsilon is a specialized honor society in Mathematics, and Anderson’s chapter was chartered in 1957. Chapters of KME are located in colleges and universities of recognized standing which offer a strong mathematics major. Recent activities by student members have included an award-winning mathematics presentation at the KME National Convention, as well as the publication of a mathematics paper in KME’s journal.
