Chair: Kristin Zabrecky, College of Veterinary Medicine
Our Outreach Committee keeps professional students educated regarding what the Inter-Professional Council does as an organization. The committee also seeks out feedback as to how IPC can better serve students via comprehensive surveys of IPC’s constituents. Some of our Outreach initiatives include involvement in each professional school’s orientation program, coffee hours, and breakfasts during final exam weeks. The Outreach Committee is also in charge of the selection, design, and ordering of all promotional items and materials.
Chair: Chelsea Devitt, College of Optometry
IPC’s Service Committee organizes and plans activities that benefit the community and/or university. Some of our past events include participation in Buckeyethon, and annual soccer and volleyball tournaments benefitting various community organizations, like the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.
Chair: David Gorenz, College of Dentistry
Our Social Committee is responsible for putting on events that promote interaction between our constituents. IPC plans several happy hours and mixers each quarter to facilitate a relaxed environment for professional students to mingle and have fun. The Social Committee will also be planning our annual Bowling Event, as well as several Tailgate events on campus before home football games.
Public Relations Committee

Our Public Relations Committee is responsible for ensuring professional students are kept up to date with everything IPC is involved in from events, to initiatives, and more. The PR Chair will not only be utilizing various email lists, but creating and updating social media accounts to keep our constituents in the loop.
