Crimson Connect

Get involved with student organizations on campus, and find out what's going on!

Go to Crimson Connect to learn about all of the different student organizations, campus programs, events, and other opportunities you can get involved in at IUP.

Crimson Connect helps student groups and campus programs promote their organizations and events.

The Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement provides services for and helps promote recognized organizations and programs.

The re-recognition process for student organizations must be completed by September 30, annually. This process is completed through the organization's Crimson Connect page and typically takes between three and five minutes.
