About Us

The Triple Helix, Inc. is an undergraduate, student-run organization dedicated to the promotion of interdisciplinary discussion. We encourage critical analysis of legally and socially important issues in science and promote the exchange of ideas. Our flagship publication, the bi-annual Science in Society Review, and our online blog, The Triple Helix Online, provide research-based perspectives on pertinent scientific issues facing society today.

With over twenty chapters at some of the most renowned universities in the world, our students form a diverse, intellectual, and global society. We hope to inspire scientific curiosity and discovery, encouraging undergraduates to explore interdisciplinary careers that push traditional boundaries. In doing so, we hope to create global citizen scientists with an interdisciplinary perspective on the translation of forum-generated ideas into the solving of real-world problems.

Our Team

The International Executive Team manages The Triple Helix, Inc. and oversees the 25 chapters and 500+ undergraduate students who make up the organization. Our team is comprised of student leaders chosen for their vision, enthusiasm, innovative thinking, proven leadership, and dedication to The Triple Helix. Together, they ensure the continued success of The Triple Helix’s old and new initiatives alike through international and various inter-chapter operations.

The International Executive Team works closely with our Board of Directors and Board of Advisors. The Board of Directors is comprised of selected past international leaders and serves primarily as a guide to the International Team. The Board of Advisors is comprised of professionals who graciously offer their advice and support for The Triple Helix projects and operations.

Our Chapters

The Triple Helix, Inc. operates primarily on a chapter-based system to ensure the broadest and deepest impact at every participating campus. Each chapter is uniquely designed by a chapter-based Executive Board that maintains total control over local operations. Chapters have constitutions, histories, and internal structures independent of international operations, allowing for a high degree of managerial freedom and innovative leadership. Chapter leaders actively communicate with the international team to maintain a continuous global collaboration.

Friends of TTH

We would like to thank the following partners for their continued support of The Triple Helix. Please use this email form if you are interested in sponsoring The Triple Helix, Inc.

Internship – Website Design: Publications have been moving online and there have been less forms of print. This is opening up a lot of new fields and jobs in website construction. Some students might even be able to get an internship with a Website Designer in Columbus, Ohio. Working on a student organization website could help lead into job prospects.

Internship – Personal Injury Law Firm: This is an opportunity for students to gain experience working at a law office between the conclusion of their undergraduate studies and the start of law school. Students in the St. Louis area could work for Sansone & Lauber if they are interested in personal injury law or for a family lawyer if they are interested in civil law.

Academic Resource – StudyPool: StudyPool is a leader in online homework help and a marketplace for academic questions. Students post assignments they need help on, and qualified tutors will answer them. StudyPool has helped over 1.2 million students. Their most popular subjects are math, physics and writing.
