What is CoM?
The Interdisciplinary Studies Council of Majors is about building community. Professor Steven McAlpine described CoM, a student-driven extracurricular, as a “space for conversations”. A student driven extracurricular, CoM is a “space for conversations”, as described by Professor Steven McAlpine. The purpose of this organization is to:
- Provide peer advertisement for INDS majors
- Enhance the visibility of the INDS program on and off campus
- Aid students in preparing INDS degree proposals
- Provide a forum for open discussion between INDS majors
- Establish a network for student discussion of curriculum across campus
- Establish a student and alumni network for job and career development
The Council of Majors is a part of the Interdisciplinary Studies program mission, seeking to participate in service, social, and educational programs for the university community and beyond.
Next year, we hope to have more experiential events in coordination with the INDS Living Learning Community (LLC). As always, we welcome your suggestions.

Last year, we had a ‘Neuroscience brunch’ that afforded the opportunity to ask an INDS alumna to about degree plans, capstones, and internships.
Petrovich Lecture is a guest lecture hosted by INDS every year. This year, we had the pleasure of having Kay Chernush from ArtWorks for Freedom. Her organization’s mission is to use the power of art in the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking.
