IDEAS Student Society at ASU – Inclusion Diversity Education and Advocacy in Science – is an academic club for ASU Online science majors that fosters an inclusive community, peer support, networking, and encourages the furthering of academic goals. IDEAS aims to create a safe, welcoming, and supportive community environment to encourage personal and academic success among members.
IDEAS is here to support the needs of our student population, including pre-health, pre-professional, students seeking graduate school, medical school, dental school, etc. While all ASU students of any degree path are welcome, our focus is on providing support to students in the online sciences.
Diversity in the sciences includes the addition of non-traditional students. The online Biochemistry and Biological Sciences programs are redefining higher learning and we are fighting to gain recognition in the greater professional and scientific community. We will advocate for our inclusion and the recognition that our education is just as legitimate as one gained by an on-campus student.
