Matt Preston with Catherine Dobris, WGSS Director

Iota Iota Iota (Triota) is a national organization which serves as both an academic club and honor society in our IUPUI chapter.

Triota was founded at IUPUI in 2017 by WGSS minor, Matthew Preston. The purpose of our organization is to encourage and support excellence in scholarship and service to the community which is consistent with our emphasis on women, gender, and sexuality.

Some recent projects have included celebrating IUPUI alumni who have contributed to the IUPUI community, working on an IUPUI panel celebrating women’s suffrage, supporting a student-led effort to restore period products to the IUPUI Campus Center, and participating in a Women4Change conference.

We welcome ALL students at the club level! We have meetings approximately once a month and love connecting with new members. Requirements for membership in the honors society are listed in the application form. There are also opportunities for leadership.

“Students have always been the driving force behind Triota. We seek to create the sort of campus where we’d like to go to school. Our campus is one that supports egalitarianism, volunteerism, activism, and diversity.”
– Janice Day, President
