There are over 1,400 student organizations at Ohio State. Use the search tools below to get involved, initiate collaboration, or attend programs hosted by our various student organizations. Contact information for each organization is listed in their online record. Use the "advanced search" tools to focus your search even more and find an organization that's right for you!

Please consult this list of Organizations Suspended by the University as of Spring 2020. Some suspended organizations continue to operate despite the action taken by the university. We encourage you to review an organization’s status before becoming involved with it, especially because sometimes an organization’s status is revoked due to serious concerns like hazing and other behavior that risks your health and safety.

During spring semester 2020, many student organizations will be operating virtually while others may suspend their operations. Please use the search features below to find and contact organization leaders for specific details about their plans.

Health Education And Development Services for Underprivileged Populations

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established II
Purpose Statement: The Health Education Activities and Development Services for the Underprivileged Population (HEADS-UP) works with local non profits and public middle schools to develop a sustainable healthcare literacy curriculum for the students attending those schools/programs who are interested in medicine. The purpose of this program is to improve healthcare literacy by means of education, mentorship and resource support for children who are in an educationally, socially and economically disadvantaged position. HEADS-UP will aim to fill the gaps in health education that are not specifically addressed in the schools current academic curriculum. By doing so - we believe that we can establish a pipeline extending from medical school all the way into 1st grade. The mainstay of HEADS UP is our work with ETSS, a nonprofit focused on providing services to immigrant and refugee families of Columbus, OH. It is our goal to teach students of the ETSS Youth Summer Program how to build healthy habits that can be applied to their daily life by addressing subjects such as diet and nutrition, exercise, common diseases, and human anatomy. We also hope to provide these students with mentorship (with medical student volunteers) by fostering meaningful and long-lasting relationships through discussion and teaching.
