IDCE Students

IDCE Student Association (SA)

"By the students, for the students"

The IDCE Student Association (SA) is a student-run organization that is committed to addressing the entire IDCE graduate student body's concerns and issues. The SA is dedicated to student achievement through participation within the IDCE community and improving communication between students and administration. The organization holds regular meetings which are open to the entire IDCE community.
