About IUAA

Three IU students enjoy each other's company.


Meet the Alumni Trustees

The Board of Trustees is Indiana University’s governing board, its legal owner, and final authority. The board holds the university’s financial, physical, and human assets and operations in trust for future generations.

If you graduated from IU, you have a say in how the university is run. Alumni elect three of the nine IU trustees, who serve three-year terms.

Want to help make the big decisions? IU graduates can run for election. Questions? Contact Amy Cope, alumni trustee election coordinator, at truselec@indiana.edu or 812-855-6610.
